Grass Skiing really feels more like downhill rollerblading than skiing. With that said, it is definitely easier for strong skier to pick up as the short skis require a tremendous amount of balance since you aren't able to snowplow or throw grass skis sideways the only way to control speed is through turning. Finding a pair of these probably presents the biggest challenge, the only manufacturer that I'm aware of is Rollka they have a few newer models you can find on ebay...
