Baker Academy was started by professional windsurfer, Ant Baker, and the 2012 British kitesurfing freestyle champion Dan Sweeney. Together they provide a range of water sport lessons in kitesurfing, windsurfing and paddleboarding, at locations in Goring and Worthing. The academy provides taster sessions, group and private lessons, as well as courses for all ability levels, from complete novices to the more experienced. Never afraid to get involved with the neighbourhood, the team launched a new initiative in 2015 called Herbies Youth Academy, which sets out to give young people a platform from which to work with adults, the media and wider community, in an effort to sway negative opinions of youth. Athletes can also look to the academy for their sports therapy service which offer sports maintenance, injury and rehabilitation options.
