it will be different, but spend ten minutes getting used to it and it'll
be the same. EXCEPT for doing tricks, those will be different and
probably harder.

to give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.

After not doing anything for 20 years other than messing around at a
bike shop just to make sure I could still ride one, I got a Torker LX
24. Took me 3 or 4 tries to mount it and a couple of fairly graceful
UPDs before I actually got anywhere... but after that, it was nothing.
Just a matter of getting used to the bigger wheel. It's like I was
over correcting at first.

Just don't get crazy until you're used to it, but it's just a minor
adjustment. I imagine if you're doing unispins and stuff, it may
present more difficulty as it's heavier and has a larger diameter so
for some tricks, clearance could be an issue.

I have on occasion ridden my friends 24s and I found that I could ride
it instantly but when it came to tricks all i could do the same was
hopping.

Your experience may be different but I would advise against changing
for something like a talent show.

it shouldn't be too hard to switch then...just practice a little bit
before you do the performance.

It won't be hard at all. I tried my friends 24" out once and after about
5 minutes of farting around on it i could do everything i new how to do
at the time on my 20" as i could on his 24".
