LF Influence. On large inland lakes with large bad chop with close pitch it's working well.

The ABoards Z-Series kiteboard rides pretty great. Guys in the shop choose it first for throwing freestyle in choppy conditions.

I second that!

The Zseries cuts trough chop, like a knife trough butter ! :thumb:

Comfy, good pop, and strong quality.

Check out http://www.balancekiteboards.com/ there is a board for any size. They're all built on the same platform and they ride AMAZING. Perfect through chop and tons of pop.

Best freestyle board for choppy water is a flexy board with rocker! LF Influence is day and night conpairing to traditional low rocker boards (balance, nobile etc). Butter ride on chop!

I ride Balance 135x40 A.O. Pro WIDE and have no problems at all in chop. I ride the Baltic Sea, lakes and where ever I am - 1 board quiver. Try it out.
