In his CBI, Karl Watson mentions an idyllic ledge spot known as Brown Marble. Can anyone ID its exact location or post up any photos?

Oh this spot? This was in a ton of '90s vids. Didn't know it was called that.

It's long gone. They moved blocks somewhere else.

Thatís Black Rock. Used to be so fun to hit the Pine Street bump then cross the street at top speed to grind the ledges.

Lavar

Steezy pic. Has to be '93 based on flat tail and wheel size.

Gotcha. I always thought the other ones were called Brown Marble.
Same ones Carroll powerslides in an old H-street vid?

You can tell black rock because of the giant black rock.

I'm expecting brown marble is gone now. I haven't seen footage there in forever.

In case anyone wants some skate tourism here (especially after Huf's passing) this spot was at the corner of California and Davis, right by Embarcadero station. Sadly been remodeled since then and isn't skateable.
