Tidal Wave Defense

At the shoreline, build a deck 100 -500 feet square. When the tidal wave comes in, it will stand the deck up on its end. Sufficient number of cables (1 every 10 square feet) will hold it back as well as reinforcment buttresses on the other side. Walls or other types of installments could be built under the water to pre-reduce the wave's energy. 17 300 ft. decks equals 1 mile. I estimate that a non-thermal nuke might make a 300 ft.(which is 20 floors) wave. There are several other enhancements to this idea that would further improve effectiveness. I am certain that the wave could be stopped.
