James Harris on the VX1 - Scott Whittaker on the switch backfoot flips

An excellent combination of solid humans here with long-standing Cirencester-based SOS Decimal Skate Store rider Scott Whittaker hooking up with West Country lens man James ‘I’m not Jacob’ Harris to drop this short but banging clip filmed at various lesser-seen West Country spots.

Scott Whittaker for Decimal Skate Store by James Harris

Scott Whittaker hails from Swindon and has been a face on the UK scene for a long time now, with a stint riding for second generation Unabomber Skateboards, before moving to his current home over at Would Skateboards.

It’s probably also worth mentioning that Scott and James filmed this over the course of only three days, which, given that they both have full-time jobs (and one of them has a new born child) is pretty impressive.
Scott’s always had an interesting trick bag, able to mix up straightforward banging tech-street skating with some more obscure numbers, which is still obviously the case, given the switch backfoot flip making an appearance here.

Along with riding for skater-owned brand Would Skateboards, Scott has also been a long time rider for Cirencester’s own SOS AKA Decimal. With Gaz at the helm, Cirencester’s skate scene has come on leaps and bounds with the construction of the truly amazing Cirencester skatepark 5 years or so ago, which has seen visitations from the likes of Lucas Puig and JB Gillet, and has put Cirencester firmly on the map for summer demos/events.
We can’t recommend Decimal strongly enough – go check out their website at: for more.
