I went (on vacation) to the beach, The sea was very calm (just like solar system) There was one person in a fishing boat, Suddenly a huge wave came to shore...

Is it possible that a gravitational wave of space - time hit the solar system in a same way?.

There are experimental projects (LIGO, and friends) to detect large gravitational waves from the collisions of neutron stars and black holes with other dense massive objects, but the mechanism of such waves in no way resembles waves breaking on the beach: neither in mechanism nor in mathematics.

If you have some space cycles, Einstein@Home is a BOINC project.
