Here’s what legendary Newport photographer Mike Moir (who’s seen everyone surf this place) had to say about Gorkin – “Very impressive surfing. Couple 2nd’s that could easily have been firsts. First chance I’ve had to give his surfing a good look. One of the few out there who made punts look easy in 2 foot crummy Newport.”
