Just like was said, a lot of it has to do with personal preference. The nice part about doing staggered standups is that you don't have so much weight on your arms. Its a more relaxed feeling. Much more comfortable. It doesn't necessarily make learning any easier, per say. But I do mine that way and like it much better. Try both, see which works better for you. Good luck, and be safe!
For me staggered stance was harder to keep the bilke straight, i would tend to put more weight to one side or the other, but other people i know think it was easier, cause it puts your weight back a little, they will both feel wierd at first. I actually learned standups by clutching it sitting, and then standing when its up, ive heard people say this is not the easiest way to learn, but it worked for me, for some reason i had a hard time getting used to poping it up in the standing position, whether staggered or not.
