When I first got a giraffe I practiced both static and rolling mounts (and have videos of each). To me rolling mounts take less effort but require more coordination and distance. They are also harder on the unicycle and not suitable for wet or sandy conditions. I find them more subject to stage fright (like in a parade) so now I almost always do static mounts. I've been practicing static mounts of my double wheel lately and my method is to get a very solid mount to the saddle before I even consider pedaling. If you want to practice static mounts practice getting to the saddle without pedaling. If you're dead set on rolling mounts make sure to jump up and land down on the pedal; don't jump to the pedal.
