While the kite's in a fade, slowly extend one arm. This should make the fade uneven. The extended arm will be the one you pull back to backspin. It doesn't need to be done terribly fast or with much pull. Think starting a lawnmower.

R.E. 'starting the lawn mower'.

Look at Bryan's video here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbG1FfYbYPM

At 2:03 he starts doing backspin cascades. Notice the type of pull he does, this is the starting input for a backspin.

For a backspin, after the first pull the following ones are not as aggressive.

Bit better look at it on this one... round about 3.10.
