Inner Visions can make you any specification of a Custom surfboard, but we specialise in 4 areas which have undergone a lot of local testing and refining, using the expertise of Sam Bleakley and in the case of one of our boards, Gary "Kong' Elkerton. Our boards are shaped and glassed in Cornwall by two of the best craftsmen, Chris "Bro" Diplock and Paul Fluin. We use sap resins, work in PU and Epoxy and have finished boards using diverse materials such as Carbon Kevlar & Cork.

Hogbin Special

The magic board.


Pinched from a Gary "Kong" Elkerton template from 1992. The biggest and best surprise is that this is not your regular "point and shoot" mid-length. It is much more.

The Hogbin is Performance egg with a curved outline influenced by design features from a rainbow spectrum of 1980s shortboards and 1990s longboards and the 1970s transition surfing of Wayne Lynch and Michael Peterson. A ‘recovery of style’ response to a twitchy shortboard to keep surfing smooth and effortless. Flatter versions go faster, but more rocker models for bigger surf feel like a bird in flight. A two plus one provides bite and drive, while a single fin is loose-turning.

Why you want a Hogbin?

Whether it’s smaller waves, big wide open faces, or all around hybrid performance, this is your board.

Hogbin Special Bonzer 5

The Hogbin shape is the perfect companion for the Bonzer 5. Expect a little bit more weight on the Bonzer, and a board more suited to waves of power and size. 

The primary purpose of the Bonzer system is to efficiently organise water flow. This is done by designing fin and bottom systems that work in a synergetic fashion in order to maximise the use of the energy that is created by the water passing through the tail area of the board. When you’re doing a turn, the water travels diagonally across the bottom of your board. The Bonzer side fins have a base totalling 9-3/4” on each side, and a maximum depth of only 2-3/4”. The angle, combined with the shallow depth of the fins, allows the fins to come in and out of the water with little resistance. This makes rail-to-rail transition much easier, which in turn allows you to keep your board on the rail with much less effort.

The Stevie B

A perfect all-round shortboard

  • Volume under chest and low entry rocker for high wave count

  • Limited rocker through the last 2/3 of the board to ensure it is easy to find and generate speed

  • Single into double concave with plenty of V out the back for good transition between rails

  • Refined rails and rounded pin for hold when you need it


In the 80s Steven Blewit was the local surf star for the current Inner Visions protagonists. He was the guy we would furtively snatch glances at whilst hanging on his every word… holding court discussing tail shapes or the amazing low tide bank he had just surfed. Stevie B died tragically in a car crash with too many waves left to surf. We named this board in his honour and in celebration of the local hero and the surf rats they inspire.

The Hake

If there is one board every surfer must have in their quiver, it needs to be a fish of some sort. There are so many variations on the fish surfboard though, so you need to look into what you want out of your fish and what will suit your surfing style. For some, it is easier to interchange between different boards on any given surf, so a variety of fish’s might be the go. Others just simply need something to spread out their quiver and give them something fun to ride when the waves are not quite appealing for their standard shorty.

For the most part, there are 3 common elements of a fish design that apply to the majority of the boards you see out there. Short, wide and thick. This gives you plenty of paddle power, planning ability, and keeps you surfing tight in the pocket. These design elements make a fish the perfect board for those smaller, mushy days, as it’ll will allow you to get into weaker waves with ease, and float right through flat sections. However, these boards can be extremely fun and functional in good quality waves and waves of size.

Inner Visions specialise in 3 fish templates:

  • The Classic Twin Keel Fish

  • The Quad Fish 

  • The Long Fish

The Midnight Rambler

Designed, Tested and Ridden by Sam Bleakley

Classic log for flow, glide and style. The squared off tail, straight outline and wide nose with a tear drop concave are based on vintage designs pioneered by the likes of Mickey Munoz, David Nuuihwa and Donald Takayama in the glassy waves of California, and adapted to the more erratic nature of Cornish beachbreaks. Available from 10’ 0” to 9’ 0” and best with at least a ten inch single fin to surf in the pocket with control and flair.

The Traveller

Designed, Tested and Ridden by Sam Bleakley

Speed shape longboard and smooth moving all-rounder designed to enjoy anything and everything from knee high pointbreak peelers, to mellow beachbreaks, to overhead reefs. With a pulled in rounded-pin tail for hold in sucky waves, and some bite in the rail edge, this beauty moves effortlessly from rail to rail working best with a dolphin shaped nine inch single fin for an easy to handle ride.
