I don't know anything about the Artifact on jumps it being a jib board but my friend rides a WWW and takes them off the 70 footer at my local hill. I still like the artifact better.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

I'm not a 100%. Some other people should be able to tell you better, but I have heard it is a more all park board. The Artifact Rocker is almost solely a jib board. Tech today is gonna allow it to do more than a jib board could in the past, but it's still not gonna be easy. The normal artifact is a bit more jump oriented than the Rocker. But Artifact Rocker vs the WWW, I would say WWW for all aroundness to the Artifact Rocker.

Neither is gonna be good to jump.

Reason they WWW might feel a little better on jumps is that it's nearly zero cam. Very little rocker.

The Rome has carbon. That means it will be snappier for jumps. As I think BA would tell you since he's ridden both.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
