I've heard that both those boards are very similar. I've never used a WWW but my bro owns an artifact rocker. It's definitely a noodle. Presses and butters like crazy! I've never used it but it looks like a lot of fun. He uses it on all his runs, mainly blues and greens, maybe an occasional black. It can handle them just fine. It has decent pop for being such a flexy board. He is 5'7 130 lbs and he rides the 144. Might be a tad bit small, but you should be fine with either that size or the size about it.
