the cheap trick would probably be better for you because the artifact has bronze edges which are really soft making it awesome for jibs and terrible for everything else.

I have had a few Artifacts. They rock for straight rails, boxes, butters, street etc. Not great on jumps and the edges suck even sharp! They wont hang on rails though and work great for that!

If you are looking for a solid board that is going to be able to crush everything you throw at it go for the Capita. If you feel like being a little more spendy, go with something like a libtech banana or GNU Street Series.

Like i said, go for those if you can afford the extra bank. But the Capita is going to be a sick board no matter what.
