Creamed Honey singlefin - Kevin Cross personal board

 This Creamed Honey diamond tail was shaped by Kevin Cross around 1974/5 as a personal rider. Apparently he made four of these red dot boards for his own use , of which two still survive. The other one is owned by Pierre in France . Creamed Honey used to export some boards to France, so this is mabye how Kevin's board got there.
There is more about Creamed Honey's history written by Kevin Cross on the blog a few years back - click here
Above- the first style of Creamed Honey logo . The board is 6'8 x 20 , quite wide across the chest area and slims down alot to the narrow diamond tail. Quite soft rails , and a beautiful light green fibreglass  fin, quite an unusual colour . The majority of Creamed Honey's had plywood fins.

  1. That is a great board! It's good to see the original owner with the board! I wonder if the other two red spots will ever pop up anywhere?
