The average shape of large waves in the open ocean made up of linear waves with random phase is given by 'NewWave' defined by the auto-correlation function of the wave spectrum. In this paper, we confirm this result for realistic directionally spread sea-states but show that there is a considerable variation in shape of rogue waves. Practical implications are discussed.
