Posted:Hey there
I found it easier the further you hand flops over your shoulder and try and keep it level . imagine your in a corridor facing the wall with the other wall behind you , try getting the poi to swing parraleel with the walls,

Oh yeah and keep you hand palm up when going over the shoulder .

Hope that helps
