Ride chop/moguls when you are fresh, its not about reacting to them...its about anticipating them. So you got to keep your legs loose and suck up your knees going over; don't fight by trying to stop and turn...your legs will be too stiff and you'll get bucked. But learn to float over them...catching a bit of air is fine...no reason to freak. In turns you will be really compressed...squatting down low...getting the board to really de-camber to grab the edge...but that will be followed by launching/popping to the next edge...like billy goat hopping from edge to edge. You will learn to pop and swing that board around underneith you...which is much easier and faster than trying to move your upper body around...try to keep your leading shoulder pointed down the fall line and then move your lower body around. When you get a rythym going by looking and anticipating your line it will be more efficient and less tiring.
