As of January 1st 2013 Aaron no longer rides for ...Lost Enterprises. He and is currently seeking sponsors for his new endeavour "Gorky Park" in Costa Rica. To quote kickstarter.com: "Aaron "Gorkin" Cormican has had a successful professional surfing career, but now he is starting a surf camp in Costa Rica so that he can give back to the next generation." http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/134449482/help-fund-gorky-park-online-reality-docu-series
"Kids stay in school cuz you can't always count on pro surfing!" - Gorkin
From 2007 to 2012 Gorkin put on the most impressive display of contest surfing ever seen on the US East Coast. In 2009 he won 9 of 11 pro events he entered, and was a finalist in the other two. See partial listing of contest highlights below.
NEWSFLASH DECEMBER 2007. GORKIN OFFICIALLY BACK ON TEAM LOST BY DEFAULT. Maybe cuz his pants were too loose or he did not want to hang out with the male prostitute drug addicts, he left his old sponsor to ride for lost again.
Fired from LOST in August 2004. Rehired cept without the actual lost logo out of respect to Aaron for his ROUKA contract in 2005. Gets the mayhem shapes he needs and doesn't have to worry about schedules n posters n promotions.
SPONSORS:...Lost Clothing and Boards, Catalyst, Arnette, Creatures of Leisure, O.G., and Beeline
Made the finals of all 4 East Coast WQS events in 2005. Showed he has what it takes at least surfing wise to make the WCT if it wasn't for that pesky Florida Flu he always seems to get. Possibly the most talented surfer of today's generation never to make the WCT.
Origin of Nickname: Jeremiah "Googa" Taylor was trying to pronounce "Cormican" and when "Gromrkin" came out, one of Aaron's friends said "Gorkin" and it stuck.
