  Rolling depends on proprioceptive

feedback, which will be different for very different boats. If I saw an experienced ww paddler climbing into a sea kayak for the first time, to go surf some waves, I would tip him over while he is close to shore, so he could find out how it feels to roll, or NOT roll, a sea kayak. I would not expect a roller with only sea kayak, or only ww playboat, experience to step into the other variety of boat and have instant surety with rolling.

Once one has roll experience with both types of boats, going back and forth may be easier than jumping back and forth from road bikes to mountain bikes.
