Sometimes my "other side" is the better mode that day; other days, it's my dominant side. Goes back and forth. Some days they are both very close but I don't think they've ever been equally good, if I'm nitpicking.

I practice both sides 50/50 on everything, not just rolling. I know I'm getting close to where I want to be in ambidexterity when I can roll up (from an unexpected capsize) and moments later, forget which side it was. Because both sides are good enough and comfortable enough that it no longer matters much, even if they are not 100% identical. But that doesn't happen right at the beginning of the season, when I have not rolled or even paddled in months. Fortunately, those days are behind me now, and good riddance to "hard water".
