We were able to create an anomalously high rogue wave splash in a water wave channel with a convergence involving a bore and solitons, and we could control it. Unexpectedly, this man-made extreme or rogue wave is related to rogue waves in multidirectional seas, solutions of the KP-equation, tsunami run-up into coastal valleys, and certain wave-energy devices, as we will show. Some steps towards the mathematical and numerical modeling of this bore-soliton-splash will be discussed, including accurate conservative discretizations of water waves, a theoretical model for bores in dispersive wave models, and a single-phase mixture theory for air- and water in an approximate model for intermittent wave breaking.
