After he gets comfortable with that you can start a mild combat roll. I started putting Katherine in at the big pool at the top of the Boulder WW course. I would have here paddle out into the current where there were small waves and then execute her roll. As she got more comfortable we would move up to more turbulent water by just getting close to the big drop. That particular place is a pain now with the drunks on the rope swing.
Another drill I would do was grab the front of her boat and jostle it around to simulate waves and then dump her unexpectedly to one side and have her roll.
