In Spanish "ola" is related to the ones from the sea, the ones which touch the beach all the time, the ones who surfers ride on their boards: "la olas del mar" (the sea waves) not "las ondas del mar".

It depends, I have heard in some spanish variations onda referred to as ocean wave. "Onda" would refer to something like a radio wave normally.

<<It depends, I have heard in some spanish variations onda referred to as ocean wave. "Onda" would refer to something like a radio wave normally.>>

Although 'onda' and 'ola' could be synonymous under certain conditions, f.e. 'ola de calor' = 'onda de calor' (wave of hot weather), as to the waters it's not the same thing since an "onda" in the sea ends normally as an "ola" on the beach.

Which Spanish variations ?
