Your tiny man go with the artifact I think you'd find the evil twin just a tad bit too stiff.

Or if you Like Bataleon and TBT chk the Fun kink softest board in the line and marketed as their Jib stick with an extruded base... yep u be tiny alright..

It is not a true twin like the E.Twin its setback 1 cm.

The Rome 1985 rocker on the artifact is a 5mm rise in the nose and tail after the contact points. Its so similar to the K2 version. That means you have to keep your weight centered on it because if you go forward or backward you're going down. But with someone who is around 100lbs it could be a different story super soft boards to me when I've got 60ish pounds on you could be slightly stiffer.

I agree with BA in that your weight may negate/accentuate some of the riding characteristics of this board due to the testing parameters..ie the weight of the reviewing rider(s) I say definatley go with a R. camber board, or some variation thereof so you won't have to press out the camber of a traditional stick you being so light...god forbid I suggest a womans board... arrrgh sorry just thinking out loud...

Just land centered it'll be a slight learning curve to figure out the balance thing but you're just so tiny go for the artifact.
