ihop You should consider the Bataleon Airobic. Same twin shape as the Evil Twin but softer than the ET and the fun.kink. People who've ridden them say they don't think it would be possible to make a softer board. Plus you get the fantastic Bataleon TBT.

Also, at least last years Evil Twin breaks in a TON, mine was pretty soft when I bought it, but by the end of the season it was an absolute noodle (still fun as hell though.)

BurtonAvenger 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.

chags613 i do more rails during the week cause all i have is a little hill but on sundays im gonna sdtart hitting bigger kickers at wachusetts cause my little hill never puts up kickers so im worried about the 1985 off of kickers

oneplankawanka I agree with BA in that your weight may negate/accentuate some of the riding characteristics of this board due to the testing 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...

BurtonAvenger 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.

oneplankawanka 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.
