Before taking out the camera and tripod from the backpack, it is a good idea to study the beach and how the waves interact with the rock and sand.  Choose one or two favorite places to emphasize, where the water motion grabs your eye.  Here, I liked the curl of the distant waves as well as how the water flows over the foreground rocks.  So I waited for both events to happen at the same time.  Eventually it did, but I had to be hit by a few waves while I lifted the tripod above my head.
