Would a substance that does not form hydrogen bonds have a high or low surface tension? What about vapor pressure, specific heat,heat of vaporization or boiling point?

It requires extra energy to break hydrogen bonds so a substance that does not form H bonding can evaporate easier (higher vapor pressure, lower boiling point etc) all other things being equal. Remember that other things besides H bonding affect some of those values.
