The water molecules rotate in small circles, and, after the wave passes, they wind up not that far from where they began. But anyone who watches or rides waves knows that energy is transformative. Surfers are much the same. We go back and forth, rarely moving very far but, once in awhile, we catch and ride a wave, and are transformed.
