If you're only going to jib than go as small as you want to. If you want to hit some bigger drops and jumps or tall boxes or rails than you might take size into consideration. I ride a 147cm to jib but a 152cm for most everything else. Jib boards are usually useless for everything else, unless you weight like 120lbs or less. That box scratcher is nice, but it's wide and short making it a jib only by my standards. I like something more narrow for ripping and jumps. I have a Machete that rips EVERYTHING. It's the only board that does everything and well that I've ridden. I have a Signal Park series that is nuts for jibbing but is a limp dick on hard pack and larger jumps. But from my experience a jib board never bodes well outside the park, and for the most part doesn't hold up to the rest of the park (jumps, pipe, large features).
And don't get that Artifact if you don't have another board for outside the park. The edge hold is a joke on them and they are WAY too soft for a big guy. They do jib well though. If jib only is your preference than it's a great deck. I would recommend that, Signal Park, Ride Kink, or K2 WWW if you want jib only fun.
