A Tona Pop is cheaper than all the boards mentioned above and out performs them by a long shot

I've had an NHP 2010 for 2 years. I also owned a mako. I am now riding a Monk Forever and a Supershinn and for the conditions I ride in most of the time (big chop) they both perform better than the NHP. More pop, great upwind, smoothest boards ever in the chop. My favorite is the supershinn. Did try the T5 but found it average in the chop and lacked pop.

Never tried Tona Pop so can't comment.

I think the best is try as much board as you can until you find what works best for you.

If you get a chance then give the Fone Trax or the Xenon LaLuz a try.
These two are my favorites and they handle big chop the best way without losing performance.

My favorite boards last year were the F-One Trax and the Shinn Street. Lots of pop and also good in medium to high chop.
