When a wave brakes on the shore, the top moves faster. The splash is created when water molecules move fast enough to break from the core volume, it doesn’t contain enough matter to absorb all red photons. Thus, the light ray goes through still contains enough photons to be white.
Water molecules in splash volume have to vary velocity, orientation, chaotic position,… That craziness makes the light rays can’t go through but scatter around and inside those splashes. That’s why we see splash are quite white and almost no refraction.
And we have the white water on top of the wave.
