  Don't capsize
  Posted by: Jaybabina on Feb-01-13 10:40 AM (EST)

Most paddlers never capsize unless you're really pushing yourself in surf conditions - which I would avoid until you gat the roll down better. But you're on the right track. 95% success - pretty good. Just keep working on it and your bracing too. What happens is suddenly you never capsize any more. I paddle with a lot of different people a lot and nobody capsizes. In real surf, yes, everybody capsizes.

Personally, I feel one good roll is better than worrying too much about what side etc. Maybe if you're a ww river paddler but for sea kayaking, one roll will usually always work.
