Tushar who graduated from Manipal Institute of Technology is an avid surfer and the co-founder of 'The Shaka Surf Club' in Kodi Bengre Beach in Karnataka. Along with his partner Ishita Malaviya, he has been evangelising the sport of surfing amongst the fishermen's children and other enthusiasts here in India. The Shaka Surf Club community has outreach programs that make way for the entire village and their neighbours to pitch in and make dividends. They teach every kid that’s willing – how to surf and more importantly, become children of the sea. This way the kids stay out of trouble, get enough sun and exercise, develop a skill, learn to love their roots and foster a lifestyle.
