What was used on this deck? Anyone have any experience with a deck/floor like this?

Ipe or redwood??

It looks like it is on a high end home. If so, I might guess Ipe (brazilian hardwood). Not sure though. I'm sure there is someone more qualified in identifying wood.

Whatever it is, I'll bet it's slippery when wet

Looks like ipe, or possibly mohoganey; it appears to be on a pretty upscale home. I'm glad I'm not the poor guy who has to maintain that finish, that is a no win situation.
