If you're willing to spend a bit more than a cushion, others have installed an adjustable pedestal.

1-2 square throw cushions is what I used in our old S&S, sometimes use 1 in our X2 at certain speeds when the nose is high.

Depending on your setup, could you fab up a spacer to go under the seat to lift it up? My friend did this to his bu using aluminum channel

I went all out put a new 10-inch pedestal underneath me do I sit too high when I'm running 40 mile-an-hour ? Sure. Do I generally run 40 mile an hour nope it is just higher so when surfing I have a place to sit and when I'm pulling wakeboard speeds I'm just high enough to see over my bow. It only looks odd when I'm sitting in the chair sitting still. See pics on my build thread

Oh and it's adjustable height and slides back and forth, so if I do run faster I slide back so the windshield still redirects the air
