Video: A Father's Legacy

Sep 3, 2013
by Anthill Films  
Paul Morrison has two loves: action sports photography and his son, pro mountain biker, Ian. This is what happens when Father and son bring their skills together in Whistler, BC, the land that has inspired and shaped them both. Although Ian's chosen career path isn't what most people would consider conventional, Paul could not be more proud that his son is pursuing his dreams.

bigquotesIan wasn't the quickest off the training wheels, but he was doing jumps on training wheels. He's been like that his whole life. - Paul Morrison

bigquotesWe've been doing it so long now it's almost second nature, I have a similar eye for a photo. If I say I'm going to turn right there, he can pick up on it right away. - Ian Morrison

bigquotesFor Ian, doing the things he loves, that's all a parent can ask for really. - Paul Morrison

 Sorry bro. In my opinion if any guy out there who has a kid with a women and doesn't have the balls to at least be part of the kids life should at least get a fist to the jaw. Hope you get the chance.

 Jealous, my dad was a well known journalist here in Melbourne and could have wrote a great article about my riding. My father passed while I was living in Kelowna, riding my bike, the Australian dream. Ironically and tragically, my father was run off the road while on a motorbike and died of brain hemorrhaging before he got to hospital. a phone call from my mother I wish never happened. Ian, treasure your dad while you've got him. and RIP to my dad, Stephen Allan Waldon

 Really sorry bro,don't know what I would do without my dad. We each have our own cross to bear which is why God gave us mountain biking to ease the load a bit.

 Great video, seen Ian in some other videos, as well as rippin it up in the park, and just hanging out in the village, seems like a cool guy. I can only dream about riding like Ian, so thanks to Paul I can enjoy amazing edits like this. Thanks for sharing a little behind the scenes action here Paul and Ian, this is my pic VOD.

 I was lucky to ride with Ian at SGC for several days! He's such a sick guy and an amazing coach! Great to see this edit and Ian deserves more notice, he knows the bike park better than anyone! Sick edit!

 Lucky kid and dad to share each others passion together this way.

Couldn't get my kids into biking as much as I tried without being too pushy. Now one of my twin daughters at 17 is asking to try out mtb on simple trails to see what it's like. Smile She also wants to try the pump track at my work.
Cross my fingers and hope she gets hooked.
