Recently I watched a German movie called Käpt'n Blaubär: Der Film. I loved this movie as a child and when I re-watched it I was really impressed with the wave physics. They are unrealistic and over the top spiky but that's what I like about them. I have attached a YouTube link where the waves can be seen. My goal is to recreate them in Blender, and although I have some modeling experience, I have never worked with physics and liquids so I do not know how to approach this project. Is there any modifier I could use for this or maybe a displacement map? I would appreciate some help with this!

Would this be close enough? enter image description here

How it looks when animated:

The Ocean Modifier creates a pretty realistic wavy sea, and the Simple Deform modifier enhances the vertical component.

    $\begingroup$ the link is merely showing the moving ocean effect (since I can't upload a video here), it's not the whole answer. the actual answer is clear enough, I hope - two simple modifiers. But I guess I can improve that. $\endgroup$
