G'day there, thanks for a great site.

In the video Billabong Pro Tahiti - The Outsider Day Four no credit is given for the words that appear, does anyone know where they originate from please?

Harry,

Steve said the words are from Rimbaud's 'A Season In Hell' (Une Saison en Enfer). Someone made mention of Rimbaud in the comments after one of his articles so he picked up the ball and ran with it (Sporting metaphors get an extra zing when applied to 18th century French poets).

Thanks Stunet and Steve, now I see where the roster fits in, very clever intermingling.

Put your faith in me, then; faith comforts, it guides and heals. Come unto me all of you-- even the little children-- let me console you, let me pour out my heart for you-- my miraculous heart! --Poor men, poor laborers! I do not ask for prayers; give me only your trust, and I will be happy.
