Wikipedia definition
2. Breaking waveIn fluid dynamics, a breaking wave is a wave whose amplitude reaches a critical level at which some process can suddenly start to occur that causes large amounts of wave energy to be transformed into turbulent kinetic energy. At this point, simple physical models that describe wave dynamics often become invalid, particularly those that assume linear behavior. The most generally familiar sort of breaking wave is the breaking of water surface waves on a coastline.
