Kevin Cross singlefin

Its been a while since we've had a Cross on so here's a beaut from Gul, shaped by Kevin in Croyde while under his own label before (?) teaming up with fellow Aussie legends Bruce Palmer and for a time Richard Harvey to produce Creamed Honey. This board with its diamond tail is probably from '73/4 . Known for their excellent quality, Honeys are expensive but sought after and I'm getting one water ready at the moment for the late summer swells. I also have a Silverwings singlefin by Cross shaped at Watergate bay early on in his career over here, and have not seen another one yet - if anyone's got one I'd love to see it.
