As the sign at Cable Beach (just east of Denmark) Reads:
"When two large swells combine, the resulting wave may double in height. If this wave bounces off a steep cliff face or headland to combine with another large wave, it's size can double yet again. Even during mild conditions, waves or swells may combine to produce a churning wall of water that can sweep people from headlands or beaches."
A 100 tonne boulder that lies in the middle of Cable Beach (near Albany WA) was tossed to shore by a wave such as described above. All along the Denmark Coast you will see evidence of large rocks being moved by the power of the Great Southern Ocean.
Always watch children closely, especially in unpatrolled areas.
