One way to make sure your roll is adequate is to go in the bay below the rapids by the bridge and with at least one buddy, that knows what he is doing, practice your roll. I know that rolling practice in cold water sucks, but if you can’t do it in calm cold water you should definitly wait at least a month before going out and trying to surf. Even if your roll is good, rolling in calm cold water might help you avoid the “GASP” reflect that you get when you suddenly flip in really, really, really cold water…
