Is it safe to paddle without knowing how to roll?

Absolutely yes. Eskimo rolling is not neccesary at all. Dress well for cold water, make a sea sock, study the self rescue movie clips on this page, and try it out yourself. I belive that this will make your kayaking trips much more safe than learning to roll will.
