Dear young blood, the curve(concave) in a skateboard is for doing tricks like ollies, kickflips, heelflips and etc. now the cancave in a board creates a kind of boost to pop you and the board in the air when you are doing an ollie or any other trick. but to do this it takes practice and detemination.

i hope this helps
