Waves would wash you away from the shore. Even if you wear an inflated jacket you get submerged under the less dense water with bubbles and almost can't reach to the surface because you can't identify what direction is the surface. Surfers are not only good swimmers and divers but also the surf board is tied to their leg protecting them not to go deeps.

In the deep ocean - waves have little height and travel fast. As the wave approaches the coast (shallow waters) the wave beings to interact with the seafloor. This slows the wave and causes it to break (surf).

Hypothesis: Hurricanes weaken over cooler water. "When hurricanes move over cool water or land, they can weaken very quickly. Strong upper-level winds can also quickly tear a hurricane apart. One very common way that hurricanes die...

In deep water, wave action decreases rapidly with depth. Shallow water does not decrease with depth. http://www.seafriends.org.nz/oceano/waves.htm

...sqrt(gd), where g = acceleration of gravity = 9.8 m/s^2, d = depth Deep water: lambda = 1.56T^2, where lambda = wavelength, T...lambda = 2.62 * 3 lambda = 7.87 The wavelength of the wave would be 7.87 meters.
