I have a Bucks Bag Bronco and it rides very high with a big rocker for whitewater - great for running rapids and fast tide rips but a cork on a windy pond.

I would suggest getting the lowest rider as you already know to fight wind.

Downside is when you gotta take a leak... it's a long put to the shore, then a long putt back out.

On a high rider you can get to shore fast.
