Dunno about the 1985's since they're reverse camber, but I have one of last year's regular camber artifacts and its super fun. So I'd definitely recommend it. As for bindings, I had some Ride Delta's on mine for added fun.

reverse camber is when the board is shaped liked a skateboard. It is relatively easier to turn etc.
