Set Waves

"From a statistical point of view, over a long period of time the chances are that one wave in every 25 will be twice as high as the average during that period, while one in every 1,175 will be three times the average." (Excerpt from the book, Seashore Life of Southern California, by Sam Hinton, University of California Press, 1987, pg. 9)
