Traditionally, that would be canvas set in paint on top of tongue and groove cedar. It is then painted with another coat or two. A very durable and water tight deck covering. The modern version is dynel cloth set in epoxy resin over marine ply. I can't tell which one is shown in the pic. Either way, the green is just paint.
