My Story

My name is Valentina Gonzalez, I am 20 years old. I am a professional waterskier from Santiago, Chile. I am currently living in the United States studying Business Administration at Florida Southern College.
I am the U-17, U-21 and Open national Record holder in Slalom, tricks, jump and overall.
I have competed in 4 Junior Masters, 2 Moomba masters, 7 world championships, US Open, panamerican championships, LatinAmerican championship and chilean tournaments. In 2014 and 2015 I was ranked #1 in the Junior world ranking list in Jump.

I have two sisters and one little brother that are also competitive waterskiers.
When I am not skiing I like to hang out with friends, wake surf, and coach some skiing!
