Ok, lets start by using sailing dinghys as an example. A terrific Sea-boat but poor in chop is the International Fireball. This boat is flat almost, with a flat front, when you sail through the sea you have to cope with the chop and it slows you down.
Now look at a dinghy with a straight stem that cuts through the chop like a knife. Both vessels have their moment and I found the flat stem works well in inshore waters waves.
Just the same with boards though no one has built a board with a straight stem, how weird would that be ?
Try working on increasing your skills, if the chop frequency is not to small you can actually build-up a technique of, 'bare-away then harden-up' so each portion of chop is cut by the edge of your board rather than giving it a slap.
I very rarely ride in chop but when I did I used this method to reasonable effect. My hips are bolloxxxxed so I really do have to work on a method if I have chop underneath me.
Try it, slice the buggers into two.
