After 20 plus years I still find myself popping my head. I have found the trick to rolling consistantly is to commit the entire motion to muscle memory and only focus on two things when you flip... first, get the hands and paddle as far out of the water as possible before you start, then think only about keeping your head and shoulders down until the boat is upright. In a stressful situation, if your having to think about too many actions, you will forget some, and the intinctual tendency to breath makes popping your head the most likely candidate.
