You’re sailing on a yacht and the ocean is calm and beautiful. You have nothing to worry about… Until suddenly the water turns dark and the so-called ‘rogue waves’ start forming. What are they? And why are they considered to be the most dangerous and terrifying waves out there? Why should we be afraid of the rogue waves?

These are some of the questions about the ocean I’m gonna answer in this video. The ocean remains largely unexplored and it’s time to get to know it better: mysterious phenomena, ocean waves formation and what makes sailors scared. Spoiler: you’ll get to know what ‘kinetic vampirism’ is!
