Steve Gormley is a no-nonsense, pragmatic and deeply interesting guy. He is a real New Yorker, born and raised out in the Rockaways. To those of us who marvel at the real surfers who ply their craft in sub-freezing temperatures and even colder water, this is the place where you don’t complain about how raw it is outside. Growing up here makes people tough. But fast forward to the ultra-high end of the cannabis business and it’s all sunshine and palm trees out on the West Coast, far from the jet engine roar of Kennedy Airport.
