i guess he works for blackbox now or something.  They had a 'employee best trick contest' and Emmers won by switch backtailing the double set rail (not kinked, but still a big rail over a doubleset).   

check it out,

Imagine the Kayo company golf skate tourney?


I'd actually eat hot dogs at the Blackbox one instead.

manual labor is the worst skate video of all time. Celentani should be shot for creating that nauseating testament to his own idiocy.

Emmers skated to DJ shadow, had tech tricks 10 years ago that I still havent seen done today, and had a good style. He needs to make a comeback

I never understood how a man so tall with such big feet could skate a 7.4" board with so much control.

yeah he was kind of unbearable to skate around. i rolled up to washington one day and he was there trying to nollie backside flip it and was putting on one of the gayest displays of bitching ive ever seen. i still cant hate on him though he was clean as fuck and ahead of his time for sure.

Some one please remind me what did he do to get blackballed by the industry several years ago, before he disappeared. He wrote a letter of some kind to potential sponsors or something like that?
