Kevin Cross

Here's a MOBS interview with North Devon legend Australian shaper Kevin Cross who is over on holiday. Kevin was here from 1971 to '76 and still has strong family links with north Devon. He made hundreds of boards in the 70s under the Kejo, Creamed Honey, Silverwings and Kevin Cross labels.
The board behind Kevin with the jellyfish spray is one of the few I regret selling on ebay a few years back, pre blog etc. . It was a Piran stinger and was a beauty, and I don't know why I sold it  ? Must have been skint..
Anyway heres three boards I didnt sell, all by Kevin , a Creamed Honey, a Silverwings (which was his budget label) , and a Kevin Cross .
