How do they make the waves in a wave pool?

In small wave pools, pressurized air is blown onto the surface of the water, or a paddle creates force in the water, creating small ripple-like waves. Other techniques utilize an "accordion mechanism" which opens and closes in order to suck water into its belly (opening) and push it out (closing) to cause waves.

How do waves work?

Waves are created by energy passing through water, causing it to move in a circular motion. However, water does not actually travel in waves. Waves transmit energy, not water, across the ocean and if not obstructed by anything, they have the potential to travel across an entire ocean basin.

Why do waves come in sets of 3?

Wave sets or groups occur when waves traveling at different speeds interact, making every few waves larger than the others. A common example is a fast-moving swell that interacts with a locally generated wave. The swell may not be very large in deep water but gets larger as it reaches shallow water.
