Ishita Malaviya, Hoalen ambassador and her boyfriend Tushar created at the end of their studies The Shaka Surf club, eight years ago.
Their surfing camp is settled on the skinny sand bar that defines the lagoon at Kodi Bengare, an hour driving from the university town of Manipal, along the west coast of India.

On 11 June 2016, for the second year in a row, Hoalen was involved in the Liberty Challenge, a race for 6-man outrigger canoes organised by the New York Outrigger Club.
It is held on the Hudson River in the shadow of Manhattan's skyscrapers.
