Bend your knees a little like your in mid squat and imagine your feet carving parenthesis as you push off and get momentum. Once your comfortable skating backwards in a straight line, try a mini drill where you skate in an S shape between the bluelines. You will get better at balancing yourself when carving and eventually for cross overs. Thats the quickest way to gain speed but takes more practice.
