Great concept you have going here. Nice palette, too. I would mention a couple of technicalities: 1) the horizon is close to dead center. Usually it looks better to have it offset some - either up or down. 2) If you want the ocean to fade into the distance, make the distant stripes lighter than the close stripes.

I see what you're trying to do with the surf. I wonder if it would be better to extend the white foam all the way across? OTOH I do a lot of striped, hard-edged landscape/seascape paintings myself (see my website, if you like) so I am probably unnecessarily prejudiced toward horizontal stripes!
