Close out??? No way - Stayed at a local house at playa la paz for four weeks and I surfed la paz and punta roca( the outside point)every day two or three times. And I never saw a clouse out wave. The point was working everyday perfect. Some days it was possible to surf the wave from punta roca to playa la paz. Catched there some longest waves of my life.

La Paz - Haha, La paz is the worst wave that closes out on almost every wave. It is only a 5 minute walk from one of the best point breaks in the world. I thought these ratings were legitimate til i saw this. haha never surf here.

Haha! - I wonder if it maybe can be the staff at Salvaspan who wrote the overview? Doesnt seem to unlikely!
