Jake Koehler, 27 grew up in Huntington Beach, California. Surfing has been his hobby since early childhood. He knew the waves well and called the ocean his second home. However, that was not enough – he always knew he would become famous one day. This is why, back in 2011, Jake launched his YouTube channel.
What made this guy a star some 8 years ago? Koehler had the idea that gaming videos could bring him some profit, but unfortunately the channel was lost among thousands of similar ones. Coincidentally Jake fell in love with diving around that time and it gave him a new idea. The gear cost a fortune and was too pricey for a teenager those days. He needed a fortune to fund his new beloved hobby, so Jake started sharing footage of his underwater adventures.
Later on he worked out the concept that attracted the most people – having followers ask him questions about treasures. Had he seen any? Could he show some videos of his findings? Koehler decided to try and went on his very first treasure hunt. The footage received thousands of likes and brought him a bunch of new followers.
