  Yes, while surfing...
  Posted by: on Feb-15-13 10:33 PM (EST)

...since getting a reliable roll, I've only had my paddle ripped from my hands once and I was quite able to pull my spare & roll up with it, retrieve my main paddle and all was good. With a little practice it is not difficult as long as your combat roll is reliable.

Last weekend during one of the more brutal surf sessions I've been in one of the crew had his paddle taken by the wave while upside-down, he managed a hand roll with help from the wave. But what the wave giveth, the wave taketh away, he was promptly re-rolled & had to pull a half off the front deck to roll back up.

There's some pictures of the surf session posted on the Neptune's Rangers facebook site.
