So this video does not really give that great of perspective. After today I would say if everyone on the boat surfs the same side I would just list the boat and surf. If i bring goofy and regular riders, then I will evenly weight and use the wake gate. What is my favorite wake to date? I would say evenly weighted with the gate. This might be because I have 350lbs additional weight over my norm listed surfing. The wave had lots of push and was plenty long.
