Default Hookah smoking In South africa

Well it seems to me 90% of the people on this forum are in Hookah Heaven.

Just to prove it look at this http://www.hookahtobacconist.co.za that is the extent as to the knowledge they have here about Hookah's and Sisha. No Natural coals only QL Limited Sisha brands (all the el cheapo stuff is here)

As for as quality Hookah's go all generic copied stuff. (always knew this country was the dumping place for knockoff's)

Well will be saving up for my KM (exchange rate is a killer nearly R10 to a $)

Well Guys you can always emigrate here and start a Proper Hookah supplier Business

Found that http://www.alibaba.com/countrysearch...s/Flavour.html has the corner on the market here that is why all the Cheap Chinese knockoff Hookah's well one thing I can say for them they have an Al-Hind QL Coal that flames up in within 10 seconds you can go from Coal to ashed coal and smoke up a storm no taste and long lasting good heat 60 min once burn out you take the whole ash which is still in one piece off does not flake or anything you can put the burnt out coal down anywhere (once it has cooled) and handle them without any ash getting on anything

I'm from South Africa too...

I bought my hookah locally about 10 years ago, and it is still going strong There used to be good hookahs around, but not lately

Luckily I like Nakhla and there is loads around The importers are 15 minutes drive from my house.

Yeah we know about the Danes (Born Free and taxed to Death)

Pst check the exchange rate of the Rand vs the Euro

Going to the Flea market tomorrow to do some Sisha hunting as well as some Grommets and a new Bowl my small Egyptian bowl broke (only have this Giant Bowl that came with the Hookah easily packs 50g of Sisha in it) we do not have those fancy Vortex or Phunnel bowls here. Will see if I can scrounge up a local Pottery maker to make me a similar bowl. (ps have glued the small Egyptian together with an epoxy and she is still smoking OK) But need a new one.

Not this stuff it is high heat resistant and it was only used on the stem of the bowl (where it fits onto the grommet) I have even used this stuff to glue stripped bolts on a FWD gearbox to the mounting to get the vehicle home it held and was a mission afterwards to get off

Actually I am amazed that our passion is in South Africa at all. I haven't in the RSA since the late '80s and back then there was very few Arabs/Turks/Iranians and I never once saw a narghile. Has there been some big influx of Arabs to South Africa in recent years? Do the people that sell narghile type stuff there come from the Middle East?

Think we have more foreigners here than in most countries of the world (eg if their was an earthquake in Nigeria and 1 mill Nigerians perish we could replace them for Nigeria without noticeable decrease in Population) Then after all the Chinese trade agreements the market is being flooded by Chinese trading (thereby el cheapo Chinese knockoff hookah's)Then we have a large Lebanese Egyptian Indian Taiwanese Chinese ect comunities here as well. Thus the Hookah wich was traditionaly smoked by the Cape Malay and Durban Indian comunity has spread. Now the new generation of smokers are starting too look for quality and not quantity in their Pipes, tobacco and Coal But sadly to say they are stuck with what is here now.
