Linear random wave theory (LRWT) is frequently used to simulate water particle kinematics at different nodes of an offshore structure from a reference surface elevation record. However, it is well known that LRWT leads to water particle kinematics with exaggerated high-frequency components in the vicinity of mean water level (MWL). Methods have been introduced to overcome this problem of high kinematics above the MWL consists of using linear wave theory (such as Wheeler, vertical stretching, effective node elevation and effective water depth methods) can be used to provide a more realistic representation of near- surface wave kinematics. There is promising as there is some evidence that the water particle kinematics from the Wheeler method are underestimated and that those from the vertical stretching method are somewhat exaggerated. In this paper, the comparisons of the probability distributions of extreme values from different methods of simulation wave kinematics are investigated by using Monte Carlo simulation procedure.
