Cross it at right angles, cross at 45 degs, ignore it and just let it pass, keep the speed up, throttle back, throttle off ( that one hurts when you drop in the trough behind! )
My advice would be; do not get too hung up on the rights or wrongs on wave jumping there are way too many different craft, wave height/shape, set-ups, load, weather conditions, etc,etc.
It will come with experience just err on the side of caution whilst you gain that experience, rather like jumping in a new car and going for a drive in an unfamilier area you would take it easy whilst you got to know that car and the road.
It will come, just dont try to run before you can walk
Good luck, and enjoy
