I'm reading the on-line reviews and according to them almost all boards "handle chop well". :lol:

So I'm turning to you for help. What board would you recommend for choppy conditions?

I'm currently looking at the Shinn Red or Turbo, Nobile T5, CrazyFly Shox or maybe North X-Ride?

you can certainly exclude the Nobile T5 from your list. it is fairly square and with small rocker, so no.
i use it as my light wind tt.

I use an ocean rodeo mako for nasty confused swell/chop. No edges to catch. It needs solid wind to go upwind though.

What do look for in a board for choppy water.

High rocker. 50mm+
Rounded tips not rectangular.
Flexible tips.

But they can be power hungry. So upside a size or 2 from your normal TT.

2nd Vote for this board which is my main ride (132 x 41), I believe the CF Shox Custom is very similar design without the carbon layup.

The Mako is also great, I use a 150 x 40 for big chop and small waves.... it rides similarly sized
to my CF so I'd endorse the comment about it needing decent wind.
