Default flatground fs180 - carving/edging needed?

Hey guys,

So i've been trying to do a 180 on flat ground. So far, I've managed to (just about) do it by carving onto my heelside - which means i turn to the left, and my f180 becomes more of a fs160 lol.

I've seen people do it really casually, and seemingly without any edging involved. I tried doing that, but usually spin no more than 90 degrees - even if i pre-wind my shoulders, arms and hips.

Am i doing something wrong here? I think I'm winding as hard as I can, but I'm guessing not. Or is it not possible to do a 180 without any edging at all, and the people I see doing them smoothly are just using very little edge angle?

THanks!
