Valentino Guseli - Protect Our Winters Australia
Valentino Guseli

Valentino Guseli


Valentino ‘Val’ Guseli is regarded as one of the best young talents in Australia and is now considered a rising star on the global scene. Breaking the world record for the highest snowboard halfpipe air, and now competing at the upper echelons of the sport Val placed 6th in the Half-Pipe at the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Val will be looking to make history at the 2026 Olympics by being the first male athlete to go for gold in 3 separate disciplines: Half-Pipe, Slopestyle & Big Air.

Living on the NSW South Coast Val is conscious of the risks climate change poses to the things he loves most – “I’ve been snowboarding since I was three and it has been something my life has revolved around for a very long time. It has taught me countless valuable life lessons and brought me and those closest to me so much joy. The thought of others and future generations potentially not having the opportunity to do something that me and a lot of other people live for is a devastating reality that I want to help try and prevent.

For the sake of the future shredders that rely on winter to do what they love, and to help to continue to grow snow sports and Australia and around the world, I want to spread the word of POW as much as possible.”
