Del Valle followed in the footsteps of British star Joe Harvey, who won the title in 2016, after recovering from a less than ideal start to the weekend on Saturday.
He was unbeaten on Sunday as he excelled in the calmer conditions, keeping French raider Thomas Batisse behind him to claim a much deserved title.
Batisse had an incredible battle with Jason Lester, who eventually finished the weekend in third, with the two getting together on the final lap as five riders crossed the line with less than five seconds separating them.
After victory on Saturday, David Gorie was unable to repeat his success and was forced to settle for second overall.
Batisse finished fourth ahead of Yaniel Fiallo in fifth, Justin Taylor sixth, Florida Series champ Cody Tetreault seventh, Sophie Francis eighth, Dave Davidson ninth and Dean Harrison rounding off the top ten.
In the 250 class, Christian Daly recovered from defeat on day one to take victory in a straight shootout with two-time Florida Series champion Kevin Sullivan. The latter suffered a mechanical issue in race three, putting paid to his chances of a collecting a second title in 2017.
Jose Luis Gonzalez was another rider to overturn a deficit in the 200 class, beating Eric Diaz and Carl Lofthouse to lift his first ever AquaX title.
