Glass and Powder Board Shop is Closing After 10 Years in Business

Scott Dickens, owner of Glass and Powder in Richmond, VA has sent notice that after ten years in business he is closing shop due to tough economic times, mounting legal bills and a corporate expansion. Glass and Powder was particularly active in the wakeboarding industry. They’ll be missed. Good luck in your next endeavor!

  1. This is terrible news for both the boarding community and the Richmond community as a whole. Scott and Team, thanks for all your years of dedication. You will be missed!

  5. About time. Nothing more then a wannabe PacSun. Full of a bunch of hardgoods they didn’t use or understand.

    I worked at Dominion while attending VCU and not a week went by without a kids dragging his deck in our shop with trucks mounted backwards or with a mismatched set of wheels.

    And let’s not forget the time they sent a kid out the door with only one bearing set in each wheel!

    Or without tightening the screws on a snowboard binding and then blaming the customer for not checking their hardware “after every run” (direct quote) when the bindings pulled and stripped the inserts.

  7. Boardparadise took Glass and Powders spot. North Carolina retail chain. Same as the website retailer by the same name. People seems nice, though I didn’t have an opportunity to see how knowledgable they are. My son is a hardcore Dominion fan, though. The vibe to Boardparadise is more corporate, less grit. We LIKE grit!
    FYI: Glass and Powder apparently dumped some of their retail leftovers at the Carytown Goodwill. Brand new merch with G&P price tags and manufacturers tags all still attached, but instead of $40.00 for Element pants for a 10 year old I paid $8.99! boooyah!!!!

  9. Scott and Cara Dickens, former owners of Glass & Powder, have announced the debut of their revamped media company – now called Rocket Pop Media. The new “comprehensive digital media” direction that Rocket Pop Media has adopted is easily summed up: If it can be delivered digitally, we do it.

    They have invested heavily in a new editing facility, HD cameras, a fantastic new business office, and some of the most progressive technology available to deliver pristine High Definition content for any format and delivery method. Their team has expanded to include graphic designers, photographers, and web developers. Their digital menu of services has grown.
