The Garage is Rome's affordable board (no frills but solid) and the Artifact is their softer jib board, which is also cheaper (since why put a lot of expensive tech into a board that is going to be smashed into rails).
I think the Garage 154 Wide is fine. I don't think the Artifact 150 is going to be what you are looking for (but I wouldn't be surprised some kid is going to reply to my post saying that they ride the Artifact 150 down triple black diamonds and 90 ft step-up jumps... or that some pro does it...
I don't know if this board is wide. So you think I should keep it then? This board is going to be good for hitting some nice jumps? What style of board do people prefer for jumps? I rode a 154 burton custom demo board and it felt amazing on jumps compared to my 158 custom x. Then again, maybe my bindings aren't far enough apart.
