What an I?

I took this photo today, and thought to use it for one of my “What am I?” quizzes. As if often the case, the image metadata will give a strong hint to those who know how to read it (that is, to those who know how to click on the “map & image data” link under the image 😉 )

Without looking at the Exif info I’d say grass skies or similar sports equipment.

What about some kind of ski for grass skiing?

I’d guess at a grass skate/ski?

Attach them to your feet and skate/ski down a grassy slope.
