When I was a kid visiting Germany, we went to a place called Mirama (sp questionable). Indoor pools, outdoor pools, hot tubs, tanning rooms, and a giant, indoor, heated, carpeted wave pool. Glorious for a 5 year old.

We had to leave when the nudist hours started.

Fun fact.  This is the Navy base that Kavanaugh and his highschool gangbang buddies drove by when he was recalling the night that he didn't rape that chick.

If it is at Carderock, then it should be a miniature Chesapeake Bay, not Ocean.

Thanks!

So... why can't simulation handle this at this point? Complex fluid dynamics probably does a fine job...

For the same reasons that SpaceX and ULA don't use KSP to design their actual rockets.

Computational fluid dynamics is for simulating.

Wave tanks and wind tunnels are for testing.
