Do it. And I can speak from experience here. I'm primarily a sea kayaker and whitewater paddler and have a good combat roll. But out on a recent fishing trip with a friend, I was using my SOT fishing kayak and had it completed outfitted for the salmon fishing I was doing. Having the need to relieve myself, I decided to get out of my seat, lean forward and pee in my footwells through my scupper holes. I was about a mile offshore and very quickly, I was in the water before my brain had time to process what actually happened. My boat managed to turn completely over with my equipment dangling from the rod holders, etc. I had no problem flipping the boat and gettin back in, but it took longer than I'd expected. Probably because I was attempting to deal with gear floating/sinking.

So yes, practice. Definitey a smart thing to do.
