Much stiffer than a regular snowboard. Notice the binding angles ( +30 +30?) and they use stiff ski- like boots to carve deep like that.
Also its have narrower waist to reduce edge changing time. Angles are >45.

Is there any stance that might help someone handle chop better? Thats my toughest area. I'm a heavy dude and I see my friends make it through it much easier. I seem to deflect off the chop a lot more and bounce WAY out of my groove. 90% of the time that I crash it is because of this reason.

If I understand you right and the chop is something like this:

you must either cut through it or 'lick' it by bending your knees down and up. Down your speed with long arcs, not with the toe edge or heel edge slipping.

I ride 18 and 0 for years and can ride switch and hit jumps. Its easier on my back knee when you are minus I think it puts pressure on your knee. But just writing about it makes me want to try new stance.
