From my knowledge and expirence in gymnastics, almost anyone can learn to do a back flip. All you need is enough flexibility to bend and jump backwards. A body type does not detirmine flexibility.

You do not need a certain body type to learn a back flip. Almost anyone can learn to do a back flip. Of course being athletic, strong, somewhat flexible, and aware of your body while in motion is helpful. As with any gymnastics skill, make sure that you learn the back flip in a safe environment with the correct instructor.

No, you don't have to have a certain type of body type, however it certainly makes it easier if you are smaller and rather petite. However, with practice and effort, nearly anyone can do it.
