Default How to hide screws in a wooden deck?

Son and hubby have removed one and a half planks in two hours. A lot of the wood is rotten but looks like a lot is not! Any tips for quick removal as there is a lot more to do? We want to save the base so are afraid of letting the hulklike son just rip them up.

Once you've got a board or two up, you can either hammer a bolster in
sideways and cut the deck screws, or get a bit of 2x4, and lever them up
using another piece of timber across the joists, the screws in that case
will pull straight through the deck boards.
