For those of you that don't know.. EMB was a legendary spot in SF.. so much went down there. Imagine our Kiener Plaza being torn down because of skating.. Anyway, Physically its still there.. they just took out the shit people used to shred and everything else was completely knobbed..now locals there kick it down the street at "the islands" which is still right off Embarcadero. You can read more about EMB here but it was definitely cool rolling through there.
Also check this video of some old EMB footage, this will give you a good idea of what went down there.. and why EMB was so important in paving the way in today's skating.
