A non-linear stretching method was implemented for stream function theory to solve wave kinematics for physical conditions close to breaking waves in shallow waters, with wave heights limited by the water depth. The non-linear stretching method proves itself robust, efficient and fast, showing good agreement with numerical tools used in the current study; hereby, extending the practical application to load assessment for wind offshore engineering designs.
