Pedro Balordi

Pedro was born in 1963 and has been diving since the 80’s. For many years he worked as a diving instructor in his spare time. At the beginning of the 90s he became more and more interested in technical diving and so he completed the first full cave course in 1997 and the first trimix course in 1998. Many other training courses in technical diving such as CCR and DPV followed. At the same time, Pedro is also an enthusiastic caver and so it was clear that he would combine both more and more. Since the year 2000 he has focused exclusively on cave diving. At the same time, he is also involved as a head of operations in cave rescue (Speleo-Secours Suisse) and has been involved in several cave rescues and salvages in Switzerland and abroad.

Since 2004 he has been diving exclusively with his KISS MCCR device and with Trimix as a diluent. This in a configuration that is reduced to the essentials and thus guarantees the greatest simplicity and security in his inquiries.

Over the many years, Pedro has been able to explore, explore and set the end of the line in many caves in Switzerland (Bätterich, Bellegarde, Bossi, Gelber Brunnen) and abroad, alone or with his partner. There are well-known caves in France such as Source de Marnade, Source du Durzon, Source du Doubs, Source du Landenouse, Baume des Anges, Planagreze, Vipere or in Italy the Cogol dei Veci & Cogol dei Siori.

Since Pedro comes from classic caving, combined cave diving, the so-called multi-siphon diving, has increasingly fascinated him and today he is certainly one of the most experienced cave divers in this discipline.

He has been able to pass on his experience and adventures in many lectures to interested divers and non-divers in Switzerland and abroad.

The current explorations of the Pozo Azul and the Cogol dei Veci are now the focus of his activities.

About SF Tech:

Behind several kilometer-long siphons like in the Pozo Azul, you want to be able to rely 100% on the material. You don't have the right to a special brand or an asking price, you just want the best. When climbing 14km from the entrance into the canyons, you can only rely on your experience and gear and not on what's 'cool' or hip. So SF Tech is clearly my choice. For me, this also includes the very fair and very customer-oriented 'after sales' service.
