The debate really never will end. Lets add skiers vs. snowboarders vs. snowmobilers. Lets add sailboats vs. powerboats.
I'll say this as a Wakesurfer though - if I see anyone wakeboarding anywhere near me, and their path is going to come close to mine, I will sit in the water and wait until they are well past my wake zone so I minimize whatever impact I have on the wake.
I have a few minutes to spare - what's the rush - nobody likes a bumpy ride and why would I want to screw up someone else's? Same goes for skiers 2X.
Doing a few easy things like this, no power turns, keeping a straight line, etc. make it all work better.
