rage = οργή
ocean = ωκεανός

raging ocean = οργισμένος ωκεανός

If you make a search in Google you will find too little mentions of “οργισμένος ωκεανός”.  However you will find many for “οργισμένη θάλασσα” (raging sea).  Maybe this is because Greeks have a very long history with sailing, but from the ancient years this was mostly in the Mediterranean Sea, and much less in any of the oceans.

Thank you for answer!

But what about μανιασμένος ωκεανός? It would be incorrect?
Yes, you can definitely say "μανιασμένος ωκεανός".   (μανία = mania)
