Question what should I know about slalom?

Hello everybody! I am snowboarding for about 3 years now and I sometimes take part in slalom. But I really rarely get in the top 3 or even close to it. It is always a matter of few or less seconds but I just don't know from where to get it. So I wanted to ask you all what should snowboarder know about slalom and where should I gain those few seconds from?

I race in GS, PGS and SBX.
Other then going around the gates at the right time with the right edge control, your best bet would be working on the start. A strong pull can make all the differance when it gets down to the 0.1 secconds.

The quickest way to cut your time is too pay off the timers.
