Yancy Spencer Surfboards available at the Surf Station. Started in 1969 by founder Yancy Spencer (who changed the name to Innerlight in 1972), Innerlight grew from a 400 sq ft cinder block building…into 4 locations from Pensacola, FL to Destin, FL. Yancy co-owned Innerlight with his brother JB (Spencer) Schluter. Yancy passed away in February of 2011 after surfing all day at one of his favorite spots in California. Since then the torch has been passed on to his family to continue in the same path.
