[ytvxxvxc] VR waves

You are on a fixed platform at sea.  Waves of various heights pass by and over you.  They break over you, so you experience the oncoming wall of water at its maximum steepness.

Waves in nature can be very big; virtual reality might be the best for depicting the sense of scale.  It is of course also much safer to experience such large waves virtually.  You don't get the feeling of being carried by the wave, or a sense of its power.  Maybe with VR plus a powered chair, like an amusement park ride.

What would it have been like to surf the Chicxulub impact?
