I don't think you should make an ocean wave.  To get a satisfying swing the 
dancers will have to do the arm turns as you describe.  You have three arm 
turns which comes to 6 beats and I always allow for two extra beats when there 
are busy transitions so the dancers would get approx and 8 beat swing, maybe 
more with energetic, experienced dancers.
