Is this little wiggle normal?

Came across this video on Instagram. Never really seen this angle but see the little wiggle from left to right as the skier pulls? Also. Super curious to see how this video ends.

You are seeing countering by the driver. All skiers pull the boat some, due to the dynamics of the rudder and tracking fins and the pylon being above the front fins the skier is pulling sideways on the boat and the driver is slightly swinging the back of the boat with the rudder. If the driver doesnt your boat will be left of center pull out to 1 right 1 to 2 left 2 to 3 and so forth.

In open water you dint really counter much.

The skier is pulling the boat to the sides, hard. Water isn't a solid, so it allows the rear to move to one side or the other, depending on the amount of force being applied. The prop acts as a fulcrum and the tracking fins are used to counteract this force- it's just torque.
