The only way to get around this is to leave your board outside at night so the core temperature makes the wood fibers open up at the lower temperatures. Another trick is to fill your pockets with quarters, the little extra added weight will stabilize the board's traction at speed.
Lol I'm not talking about 50mph more like 15-20mph. I just feel like my board accelerates way to fast so I always riding sideways trying to kill speed.
