“We are delighted to be one of the sponsors for Makaha Bowl Jam 4, said Corra Group Co-founder, Gordon Basichis. “As kids, Nick Gustavson and I, the owners of Corra Group, used to surf and skateboard, in Southern California. This is part of our culture."

Corra Group was one of the primary sponsors for Makaha Bowl Jam 4, a skateboarding event held at Van’s Skatepark, in City of Orange, California. The Makaha Bowl Jam features dozens of competitors in a series of events, including Best Tricks and Big Air competition.

“We are delighted to be one of the sponsors for Makaha Bowl Jam 4, said Corra Group Co-founder, Gordon Basichis. “As kids, Nick Gustavson and I, the owners of Corra Group, used to surf and skateboard along the beaches and byways of Southern California. This is part of our culture.

“I was friends with Larry Stevenson, the founder of Makaha Skateboards, until his passing," said Basichis. "His son and present owner of Makaha, Curt Stevenson, have been friends for over twenty years. Larry was an innovator and a pioneer in the sport. He was man credited for making the first quality skateboard in the world. His was the first company to use clay wheels, and Larry had the first patent on what was then his world famed kicktail. Sponsoring a Makaha event is like sponsoring a piece of California History.”

Basichis pointed out that Corra Group provides employment screening to a variety of sports and entertainment groups, including product and apparel manufacturers who specialize in producing goods for the sports, like surf ware and skate ware.

“We run background checks on everything from drivers to divers,” said Basichis. “As many products and services in the sports and entertainment industry are made in our backyard, we are aware of the different companies and the services we can provide them.
