Roller Slob 1987 is a ten-minute short movie by Steph­en Quintin, the ori­gin­al, sep­ar­ate 16 mm film and audio tape of which were dis­covered in a box in New York City whilst on a skate­board­ing col­lec­tion-related shop­ping spree, then trans­ferred and re-synced by Six Stair.

The film fol­lows a day in the life of a skate­boarder — Quintin — who gets his kicks selling drugs and chas­ing girls in lower Man­hat­tan. This is one of the best skate movies ever made in New York City.
