The My-Chron Light MCL is perfect for timing slalom racers. It will provide the answers you're looking for. Originally designed for road race motorcycles and karts, it is the worlds smallest and best selling lap timer. It has been in use for many years and has proven to be reliable and accurate.
The display and sensor (infrared receiver) can be mounted on your board (I mount it with Velcro on the nose of my boards), or on your body (I have mounted it to my ankle). The beacons (infrared transmitters) are set at the side of the course. When you ride past a beacon it automatically switches the timer, then records and displays your time.
The display and sensor are very small, light weight and powered by two long life coin cell batteries. The display has large easy to read numerals that can easily be read while riding. The sensor simply needs to be located in the line of site of the beacon. The lean or angle of the board is not a problem.
The beacons have great range (up to 60 feet) and run on either 8 AA batteries (not included) or a 12-volt motorcycle/car battery (connectors included). They are durable, weather proof, and all beacons are a common frequency so only one pair of beacons is required on a course to time every rider who has a display/receiver mounted on their board.
For slalom racing, you will need at least two beacons (one at the start, another at the finish). Additional beacons are available and may be used for split times.
