The Scratch and Skate Jam 2018 saw a heavy session organised at Cirencester Skatepark by Decimal Skateshop, all of which has been captured on film by Bristolian lensman James Harris. This is now the twelfth skate jam hosted by Decimal Skateshop in the town and the fifth at the concrete skatepark since that was completed, with this year’s event seeing the various challenges which characterised last year’s event eschewed for a more straightforward jam format…oh wait, no they weren’t – organising a ‘tricks in flip flops’ jam show a commendable level of sadism that we can only salute, while the death race is a classic addition to any skate event and the product toss is guaranteed to bring out some top notch violence in all concerned.
Decimal have been serving the Cotswolds skate community for a long time now, putting on jams of this sort and hooking up local skaters in the manner of all good skater owned shops, and not in the manner of the internet. Their recent Scott Whittaker clip, also filmed and edited by James Harris, is well worth checking out if you missed it a couple of weeks ago (Scott’s taste for obscure 90s flatground tricks is just as visible in this edit as it is that one), and you can peruse plenty more from them via the tag on our website.
Big up SOS!
