So is a longer mast easier to learn on? Mine came w/ a 24" and a 15". Slingshot says to start w/ the 15"

Longer its harder to balance. And you fall from higher. Once you learn how to get up on wing than the longer mast is more forgiving carving and to keep from breaching. But it also will make you fall on the wing easier so wait till you get a few sessions and then switch to the longer mast.
