If you can hit jumps properly and consistently, then you should be fine to learn basic backflips.

As others have said, it's really as easy as a 360, just takes balls and a soft landing.

Do make sure you learn them into powder or something really soft your first time though, since everyone I know has landed on their head while trying to get used to the rotation. It's all about spotting your landing so you can speed up/slow down the flip.
