sometimes i have this same problem... its strange...

for some reason everytime my sister gets done taking drags from the hookah something is different.. and she also takes faster weak pulls not the longer big pulls like i do. it doesnt really ruin the session but it is annoying having to restart the bowl when shes done.

what i mean by carbing is if you DO NOT have the self seal system and have to thumb your hose for someone to hit, perodicly let your thumb go for .5-1 second, amoung other things it makes it drag easier.

Ya I have a two hose but I set it up with one because its just a pain to keep reminding people to cover it when they are not pulling it... plus I find it pulls better with one. Ya I could set him up on his own but thats just a waste of good shisha..but hey maybe not since he enjoys it that way...hmm

it can be a difficult spot to make a choice on, for me hookah like footbag has always been about love and peace, my house rules, you raise your voice in anger argue fight or get sassy you can just leave, it always been about relaxation to me. and ive never had to kick anyone out, and man ive had some bad ones, on friend who would clear the chamber before every hit another who without fail every session would somehow knock the coal off my bowl, weve had shisha burn weve had coals explode.

try to work with him is what i would do.

I'd suggest talking to him and explaining what his technique does what it does to the shisha and the session. If you just say "Dude, take bigger pulls or you'll screw up the shisha" that won't work. You've got explain the WHY it does what it does, so that he understands - once he does, I'm sure he'll change his habits
Appreciate that Codeman... I think you really have to smoke a lot with friends to notice how different techniques affect the session...maybe I'm very sensitive but I notice it a lot as do my other friends.

Yeah I've been through a lot of that stuff to...the coal burns and all lol...and I have worked through it too...its about the same things for me to but I like to make sure everyone enjoys it and he just seems to be killing it for everyone a little...I mean its not the end of the world or anything but I thought you guys would have some ideas...which you have ty. I think I'll keep working with him and maybe I'll try and make the shisha so it's easier to pull, bigger holes in the foil maybe or this carbing idea perhaps... also the switch to naturals should do some good I hope.
