I am enjoying my new 2014 Mondo. I am new to wake surfing (I am a skier). But I cannot find any real info on how to configure the flow surf plates and ballast.

I understand that for wake surfing, ballast is key. it sounds like filling up the front tank, and the rear left and maybe 1/2 of the right rear is a good start.
1. now what about the plates? do I put down the left plate only, or both?
2. should it shoot up water like a rooster tail or is that because I dont have enough people and weight in the boat?

Thank you! I just need a starting point!
