Water waves come in various forms. A wave is a disturbance in a medium, or in the case of water waves, on the interface between water and air. Small water waves (ripples) mostly feel the surface tension of the water as a restoring force; for large waves this is gravity. Waves that move into shallow waters, like near a beach, tend to become higher (larger amplitude) and will eventually break.
