Might not be an internal combustion engine, but how much HP do you think a 100ft wave has? One moving part with WAY more than enough power.

Waves are sun powered. (wind) Waves are quite efficient at transmitting energy over long distances. The energy contained would be what was put into making it.

Efficient use of power is taking 23-28 mph wind and turning it into 65.3 nots of forward momentum on the water. Thats 75 mph. Do that on the highway and you'd get a ticket.
