That's an extremely difficult question to answer.

It depends on many details of the vehicle - not just its size and the parts that hit the water, but also how it moves (e.g. wheels, legs, something else).
For humans, this study is interesting. It doesn't work on Earth, but it should work on Moon.

There are a huge number of variable involved here. The most important one is the shape of the hull. Even given that, there are problems with the "roughness" of the hull. This is an extremely difficult, complicated problem.

They see me driving - They hatin'.

Well, the bike had fins added to create more lift.
The first wave riding scene looks quite dangerous for all the others in the water.
