Will smooth decking be slippery?

Marketing/Advertising are powerful tools when used to promote products into the UK market. Damp and wet winters/summers meant that grooved boards would provide a non-slip surface.

The facts are that wet timber in domestic use will only be slippery if it is not cleaned once a year like patio slabs.

What you are not told is that grooved boards collect the dirt and debris, therefore preventing the water from draining away. Even with a slight slope engineered into the deck.

It is this build up that deteriorates the timber quickly and thus makes it slippery.
