Try to leave your shoulders straight or even move them in the opposite direction while you're doing the first 90 degrees of a 180. Needless to say, pop and tweak the shit out of it... I'm not sure if this will help you much but just how I (try to) do them.

That cardiel pic couldnt be any doper, he's got the 90's baby wheels wearing a flaming thrasher shirt going through a ring of fire for a thrasher cover, not to mention his style hands conjure up images of saintly greek orthodox iconography... and the shifty is bolts proper

It was the TWS vid with biebel.. subtleties I think.  Super dope shifty, I remember it being slow mo'd and I really wanted to see it in regular.  I mean the shifty is all about the rhythm and the motion and you gotta get a feel for it without the slow mo

Yep, at 3:21
I feel like he did another one though on a QP that was painted an orange-ish color.

Good shit in here

Also looks like the deck is a slick  :D
