When waves kick up, hit them HEAD ON, DO NOT LET THEM HIT YOU BROADSIDE. You may even want/need to accelerate a little turn the boat into them or to help you cut through them head on rather than having then roll over you.
No, I hate to disagree but DO NOT hit them head on, especially with a bow rider. If they are big,they can go over the front. You need to hit them at an angle. But yes, go fast enough that they don't roll over the front.
