I've been having problems with rolling my Option- I seem to get stuck on my offside under the boat a lot, and can't sweep the paddle over to my onside very efficiently. I have gotten beat down a couple times because of this inability to roll quickly. The boat either doesn't tip over completely right away or I can't move fast enough to my onside to get upright. I have a solid roll in the Delta, since I can roll over completely without any of that "sticking". Any tips on how to roll more quickly or prevent the boat sticking rather than flopping over completely?

I'm a beginner so I can't talk from experience but I saw a YouTube video of a guy saying his roll has become more unreliable in the new polyethylene boats. What he showed he had to do was brace differently holding the paddle lower and out farther I think. Now don't quote me I'm not the right person at all to be telling someone how to roll. If I knew how to copy a link I'd show you the video. I'm not from the e generation.
