Paint, throw sand on when wet, then when dry put another coat of paint on top. You can mask off patches to make it look smart. Don't try falling on it though as it will take your skin off. We used this method before the new-fangled anti-slip decking material became available.

Similar to salars response, but only requires 1 coat. Apply paint, when its tacky sprinkle sugar or salt on it. Once its dried, wash off with warm water to dissolve the sugar or salt.

Works nicely with clear varnish too.

Bit of lateral thinking here - try deck shoes!?!

Bang on. Best way to do it. No matter what you have on your feet you won't slide.
I think I got that one from Salars site. :)
