Well, I haven't got a 'frequent flyers' status myself, but
I've been thinking...
If you're trying to get high off small chop, won't going
really fast just bounce you over the chop, and your airtime
will be really good for length, but crappy for height?
I've been considering inertia - a fast board acts like a
heavy board - if force in an opposite direction (or a force
pushing up, from the lift of chop) hits it, it will be less

If the chop isn't big enough to change your board's
direction (towards the sky), wouldn't speed just kill your
potential height off the ramp?
Is this true or is it just stupid assumptions?
Please fill me in on the truth! It's really important that
