  In kayak, if you fail rolling on one

side, the paddle is likely to be oriented for a try on the other side.

Not having a good roll on my "off" side meant that I would try a slash roll on my good side, and then set up for a second try, C to C.

If I got stuck in a side-surf hole with my good rolling side upstream, I used my clever upstream rock brace to push myself free. I hear a lot about never bracing upstream, but I have often done so, merely being careful not to get the upstream blade face trapped by the current flowing down over the rock or ledge.
