Yea, I keep a pretty heavy cooler and a bunch of stuff in there. You also have driver weight on that side.

One suggestion is to move stuff and people around till you find what you like. Change speeds and wakeplate based on each thing you do. Keep notes. I know with the kids I have to put the wake plate down half or below or the wave is so steep they go ripping down it and stab the front of the board into the trough. I like it a little steeper and with more push but I'm bigger and on a bigger board sitting lower into the water.
