All that can really be said is practice, practice, and more practice.

Some things you may not be doing that can help
-Different tire pressure (Tire should have a LITTLE bounce, not enough to make your tire fold, really this is more personal preference though)
-Seat in front riding
-Adding prehops before you jump

I would advise against seat in front riding and learning to prehop just yet. You need to be able to hop static well for many trials lines. I would practice seat in until you are hitting your goal of 24", and then slowly switch to seat in front. Practice both and you will start your path towards becoming a good trials rider.

Not necessarily. Static means stationary, so it just means that you aren't moving before or after the hop. So, it would be something like going from on top of a rock over to another rock, where neither of those positions allows you much (if any) wiggle room. Like Danni says, it's important for trials riders, who have to be able to nail their landings without a bunch of small hops, etc.

I wish I could do it better, too, but haven't practiced much lately.

I would define static as "not rolling". Haha.
