I need a seat for my ocean kayak frenzy. I seem to need more support because my lower back starts to go numb after a little bit. Would a taller seat help with this?

A taller seat won't help and might actually make things worse. Those boats don't come with seats at all, as I recall, they are just rather basic molded recreational sit on tops with a place to plop your keister and a series of steps for your feet. I imagine you would have difficulty mounting an aftermarket seat in one of them -- nothing on the hull to reinforce any mounting hardware for something like a back strap.

as others said, poor posture is probably to blame. Keeping your back straight and upright is key. google core exercises for kayaking.
