Wave crashing simulator semi-DIY???

I'm not sure if the following is beneficial or not, what do you think?
I have 2x powerheads: modded maxi-jet 1200s pushing about 1600gph on a wavemaker which alternates them every 90-seconds. The powerhead on the left side of the tank creates a cyclone/tornado of water from the surface and shoots tons of little air bubbles across my reef about every 20-30 seconds when it is on. The blast of air bubbles only lasts for about 1-2 seconds. The powerhead on the right side does the same thing but probably only about once every 90-seconds. I just let them be thinking that maybe it is like a wave crashing affect across the top part of my tank as it hits all of the sps.
