Speaks the truth smokeshop just wanna sell they products and make money most(not all) haven't got a clue what they are doing.
And i hate when people start taking a drag straight when the coals are put on, so what i do is bring the hose out when the bowls heated lol, most are like WTF are you waiting for

The reason I love HP is that there is a love of the tradition of hookah more here than any place I've seen. I hate little friggin hipsters and how they destroy hookah culture just cause they think it makes them look cool or something. They set it up wrong, they smoke it wrong, they dont even know how to properly pass a hose without offending anyone. Bah...
anyhow, Sambooka's vid is honestly an excellent video that newbies should see, even if youve smoked for a while but never were really taught directly, its important to see. I can't tell you how many times I set up a hookah and people wanted to inhale the second the coal hit the foil, i mean, let the fucker heat up, you gotta preheat the oven to bake cookies, it works the same damn way man!
