I will say yes it definitely works in a bowl
it is 14.6" wb which is fairly long which is good for stability at higher speeds and a more drawn out turn
shorter wb id say are better for doing like more complicated lip tricks and stuff like that. i am guessing Tony Hawk did the 900 on a 8" x 14"wb board. so even spins are probably better on a shorter wb board.

As far as I am concerned the Curb Crusher has a rather short nose.
That's why I never got one, since I really rely on having a longer nose when I am skating transition.
I once had a board with a short nose and stepped off the edge of the nose doing a disaster. Eversince then I will always go for a longer nose.
To me the perfect board is the Heroin Mutant / Dead Dave board. I have literally skated dozens of it and it looks like I won't change my setup anytime soon.

I mostly skate miniramps, a bit of street here and there, some vert and some bowls and the board work perfectly in any terrain.

If you are looking for a board to just cruise in a bowl, the curbcrusher definitely is a solid choice. But if you are trying to do tricks, especially disasters or nosepicks etc, try going for a bigger nose.

That's just my opinion on the shape

Are you my alt I forgot about? I really like the big nose the Mutants have and although the Curb Crusher is the only board I like from the recent Heroin drop, I won't buy one as the tiny nose will probably throw me off. Side note: the gold and holographic foil that Heroin recently started using a lot looks horrible and ruins any deck they make. I like the Savage-series art from the new drop but I refuse to get the Mutant just for that reason. Only deck that made it look good was the Zane Theater deck.

Skateboarding is a joke
And if you think otherwise
you're fucked in the head

It's not that serious -
Go fast, catch a frontside
And remember why you love it

I presume this is humor?
