A “sneaker wave” is not, as you might think, a swell of K-Swiss shoes. It’s actually characterized as a random wave that’s hugely disproportionate to the rest of the wave train. One second, it seems like a calm day at the beach, but before you know it, you’re in a Kelly Slater surf video.
And that’s exactly what happened to Steve Raplee and some other bystanders on a beach in Oregon. He thought he was filming a quiet moment at Coos Bay, but seconds later, he was telling everyone to run for cover.
That escalated quickly! Everyone made it to dry land before the surf could crush them, despite the hilarious lack of urgency in Raplee’s voice. Seriously, this guy is about to get eaten alive by the elements, but he sounds like he’s reading a piece on NPR.

Traveling to the Adriatic Sea and walking along its beautiful waters is already a majestic experience on its own. The blissful scenery makes for a perfect stroll. However, of all the coasts you can enjoy the view from, we suggest this one in Zadar, Croatia, where you’ll be in for an even more magical treat.
A series of small holes and tubes in the boardwalk create a gorgeous melody with each ebb and flow of the waves. It’s a truly unique tourist experience.
It’s amazing how you’ll never hear the same tune twice. All the more reason to visit more than once!
