(3/8/2013)

Bali immigration authorities are holding a 41-year-old American James Scott Pelleggrine, awaiting deportation for overstaying a tourist visa.

According to Kompas.com, Pellegrine, known internationally as an oversized surfer,  came to Bali on December 26, 2012 using a 30-day visa-on-arrival that can be extended for an additional 30 days upon application with immigration authorities.

According to reports, Pellegrine was found to still be in Bali on an expired visa.

The chief of the Bali immigration office in Denpasar, Bambang Wisnu Wardana, said: “We had received information from the public that there was a foreigners who apparently lacked proper documentation. We subsequently followed him to see he was organizing a passport at the U.S. Consulate in Bali.

As Pellegrine left the consulate immigration authorities followed the man who was driving his own vehicle. They pulled the vehicle over on Jalan Hayam Wuruk, on the same road as the U.S. consulate, and brought the man to the immigration office when he was unable to show a passport.
Bambang told the press: “After being interrogated, he admitted that he had lost his passport in Kuta, left in a blue taxi.

James Pellegrine has violated immigration law Law No. 6 of 2011 and will be deported to the U.S. in the near future.

Pelleggrine identifies himself as a businessman and frequent visitor to Bali where he is well known as an oversized surfer who sells clothing and surfing equipment. He is reportedly creating a new clothing label Big Boy Trading specializing in clothing for very large men.
