Weight distribution is highly boat model dependent. But as a rule of thumb:

Amount of weight determines size of wake.
Weight distribution front to back determines shape of wake.

More weight in the back gives a sharper, steeper, lippier wake but it will wash out closer to the boat.
More weight in front gives a rampier, mellower lip with a longer sweet spot (you can ride farther back).
