Great wave sailing on one side, and flat water in the protected bay on the other side. At Damon you can go on the surf side and it will be smaller than the CLRV reading. Damon can be a bit burly surf side though since it beach breaks pretty hard on the first wave rather than stair stepping like Manzanita or curling like the points and jetties. If it is too big, now that the road is fixed you can bay sail off the end again in Gorge like conditions as well for a safer alternative.
