I don't know anyone who's offside is as good as the onside. Actually I have one woman friend who has both sides really great. But practicing it allows you to learn what it feels like being suspended under water on the less favorable side of the boat. That's really important.
In the handful of times I actually had to roll up, I always went for my onside even when it would have been better to use the offside. I'm just so much stronger and more confident there and I can scull great on that side too. But I always practice both sides.
