    Humidity

    How do you check humidity for your speed runs?..gps?..weather channel?

    Does humidity help or hurt performance on the intercooled skis?..rpms?..top end?

    Well with a water temp and air temp increase of 12+ degrees and 80% + I lost over 2 mph.... Our riding waters are 89-91 and a air temp 93+ with 80%+ humidity and it SUX! But hey atleast I'm riding eh! :P Cant wait for the water to get to about 60 with air the same and 50% humitiy. My ski will be haulin' ass and everyone else's too. I figure by August I would have lost 3 mph atleast. Cant wait to post dem 80+ mph runs on line in the fall.
