Creamed Honeys by Richard Harvey

Here are a couple of Creamed Honey singlefins shaped by Australian travelling pro Dick Harvey, now better known as Richard Harvey, accomplished shaper and artist based on the Gold Coast, http://harveysurf.com/ . Richard won the Australian titles in 1973 at Margaret river, beating the hot favourite Michael Peterson , and while travelling he spent a few months in 1975 at Braunton shaping for Creamed Honey. I contacted Richard and he has kindly shared his experiences and photos, see later.
This board is a very tidy singlefin from the Gul collection, with a nice pink tinted deck , a sleek looking shape showing the Australian influences. Looks like the logo was changing a bit at this time too.









This 7'8 is from Henry's collection ,a similar shape with a rounded pin tail and plywood fin. Again a different logo but with the same Dick Harvey laminate. Harvey made quite a lot of these boards in a short amount of time for a big shop order and make some money to keep adventuring. Thanks to Richard, Henry , Alex and Gul.
