The Ruckus Revolution

Iowa Born And Bred

   Unkl Ruckus's Smoking Emporium & Skate Shop began operations on April 20, 2013 in Des Moines, IA with the dream of revolutionizing a mixture of skateboarding and functional glass art cultures in a way that would allow all walks of life to enjoy and partake in the hobbies and passions that made their lives beautiful. While pioneering one of the cities most extensive collections of functional glass art and manifesting one of Des Moines most diverse skateboard offerings we have managed to create a truly unique artistic experience showcasing the works and efforts of artists all over the United States in one central location whether it be glass art or graphic art focused. Let our team treat you to the experience of a lifetime unmatched by any other smoke or skate shop in the industry and show you how we bring the RUCKUS!


Unkl Ruckus's stands for much more than just a simple smoke shop. No, we like to think of ourelves as revolutionaries in a sense.  Not that we've changed the industry but more in a sense of restoring it to its previous glory, when glass was affordable and skateboarding was prevalent. 



"It is our mission to provide the highest quality smoking and skateboarding utensils in a comedic and helpful atmosphere while offering innovative solutions to our patrons smoking and skateboarding demands."
