A freak wave is a wave of very considerable height, ahead of which there is a deep trough. A case study examines some basic properties developed by performing wavelet analysis on a freak wave. We demonstrate several applications of wavelets and discrete and continuous wavelet transforms on the study of a freak wave. A modeling setting for freak waves will also be mentioned.
