Default Low wind board for choppy water

I do alot of riding in really choppy water (cypress and picnic) and am shopping around for a new low wind board. What would you guys recommend? My skill level is intermediate and more than anything else, I am looking for a board that will keep the water out of my face.
cheers all

In light wind you will have much less chop to deal with. This decision might also depend largely on your budget as well. I would do some research and see if you could snag something off of ikitesurf classifieds.

Good point about the lesser chop in the lighter winds. I was impressed by the Cabrinha Plasma at the low end in a demo. I already have a large lightwind tt, a massive Underground board. Despite that I have been looking around for a good used deal on a Plasma.
