The influence of wind on extreme wave events in shallow water is investigated numerically. A series of numerical simulations using a pressure distribution over the steep crests given by the modified Jeffreys' sheltering theory shows that wind blowing over a strongly modulated wave group due to the dispersive focusing of a chirped long wave packet increases the time duration and maximal amplitude of the extreme wave event. These results are coherent with those obtained within the framework of deep water. However, steep wave events are less unstable to wind perturbation in shallow water than in deep water.
