I can make the bowl part, it will have a 1ft of deck on it.  I want to put a 6ft tall wall around it to do wall rides on (I ride bmx).  I was thinking just nail 2x4s around the back side of the deck and just bend plywood around it, then run 4x4s from the ground angled to the back of the wall for support.

First of all: Are you talking a bowl or just a wall curving?
 
A curved wall would be the same as a ramp just tilted 90 degress. Thinking about bowl? check this:

Secondly: Do you board, blade or bike? Judging from the pictures I guess you're bmx'ing. It matters on the radius. Bmx's like bigger curves than boards and blades.

I only plan on building one end of my mini into a bowl, I know how to build a bowl.  I wanted to know if anybody on here has any tips for building a curved wall ride that will go around my bowl corners.  And yes I do ride bmx like I said a few posts up.

I like your ramp. Looks like alot of fun do you hit that wall behind the sub ?
 
To build a curved wallride I would build it like I would build a quarter. I would have top cutout and a bottom cutout.

make the ply wood on the bowl extend to vert...
then just add 2x4's to get the hieght you want, and curve the ribs in between the 2x4's like you would do to a bowl

you disgust me, and I take
comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will
be nowhere near as humorous as mine.
