What do you recomend doing to keep wooden surfaces from getting slick in damp environment where they won't be ridden very much?

Thanks

if you look at the into parts to roam/ the collective esp darren berrecloth's parts it looks like there is chicken wire on the topside surface. i imagine it works quite well considering the size of the holes and the size of the tread of tires. seems like just enough to ensure you are gonna get grip if its wet.

Using natural split logs, instead of finished lumber works very well. Also, you don't have to cart it out into the woods, and it looks better. Plus it's usually free.

Here in Michigan using well nailed roofing shingles has done the trick.
Also cutting hatching into natural wood seems to work as well.

i found a big board with 2.4 sides thats about 8x5 or so at the place i work. it is covered in a cheap rough carpet. i'm gonna use that for the landing of a jump that i'm building this week. i can't see that getting slick in the rain at all, so if you don't need to cover a ton of surface that might be a possiblility. chicken wire also should do the trick.
