Nothing really special; just a fun wave. Algoma is about 50 miles north of Sheboygan, and sticks out farther into the lake. So if the Elbow is fading, you'll still have several more hours of surf at Algoma. Wear booties, as the bottom is kind of a mystery (re-bar, tires, bodies, etc.)
One of the unique things here is that you can actually camp on the breakwater! No open fires, and don't get too rowdy. People fish for salmon right off of the breakwater, and I've personally seen many a fish being pulled-up.
This wave is certainly shorter then the Elbow (in Sheboygan), but it seems to have more kick. And like the Elbow, the water quality (epecially in summer) can be iffy. It seems to mostly be wood chips/particulates, but who knows.
