Tricks which require a solid 360 Front Kick: Pop 360 Kickflip (Wikklash)
The 360 front kick is essentially a tornado kick in which you swap the inside crescent for a front kick. This kick is slightly more difficult than a standard tornado kick because you have to make it appear that you have stopped your momentum while you execute the kick. Your momentum won't actually stop, but rather your stance will open up and the momentum will continue to travel through your lead/landing leg.
This kick was made popular in the late 90's by Steve Terada who included it in many of his forms. The fact that he could stall this kick with the base of his body five feet off the ground enhanced the visual appeal of this kick and made it appear much more difficult. Like most basic tricks, when performed above and beyond the standard they can appear much more impressive than any sloppy-performed class D trick.
