The surf can be loud
I was visiting a friend at their ocean front condo just before a storm came onshore. We were watching a movie and had the french doors slightly open when it started to rain. The speakers home theater system were getting drowned out by the sound of wind and the crashing waves.
Waves when pushed by winds can get quite large and noisy. As the storm slowly came ashore, we shut the doors and watched the ocean churn and the rain come down sideways. We rarely get lightning storms on the coast but we were treated to a brief show of thunder bolts that appeared offshore.
