Default 1's and 3's rotation technique

This was beaten to death in another thread on "counter rotation" but I want to learn the floaty way that Jed and wolf describe as I bring it forward to 3's. I can wind up and huck 1's and sometimes 3's but it seems like too much effort so I want to learn the right way. Plus I'm sure they are ugly.

I'm riding goofy and want to do a frontside: Do I open up my right shoulder outside of the tip of the board to the right, pop or unweight the board, then move my hips to bring it around or should the shoulder/head movement be enough to not need the hip movement.

Backside: move my right shoulder to the left of the board tip, pop/unweight the board, then land looking uphill.

If I'm doing it right should I need much hip movement to get it to land or should the initial setup movements be enough.

I understand the setup carve from the SA video just looking to master the proper rotation technique on flat ground before trying to put it all together.

Thanks and sorry for beating the dead horse.
