heat management, practice, diffuser (it does a small increase in density from what i saw), practice, ice (helps condense the smoke), longer stem if i remember helps also, practice, more heat will give more smoke but you will burn the tobacco, and practice

I am still learning how to perfect the smoke cloud density and amount, just practice pretty much, so far, i have read certain types of shisha all burn differently bla bla bla.

But all in all, once you figure ou the coal situation/water mixture, your set.

Practice, practice, practice and more practice...

Don't feel bad, I've been smoking for years and I still can't do smoke rings.

If you want to cheat, there are a few posts about tips on smoke rings: i believe using a Papertowel roll and blowing the smoke thru will make rings.

heat is the key, you gotta learn how to manage it and take it right to the edge of burning and keep it there as long as possible.

Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice ohh and did I mention Practice??

Be sure to put your coals on the "outside" of the bowl, if you get to overzealous and put them on the inside, you will get some good clouds, but you will most likely burn your tobacco!

Here, try this! Use a windscreen, and if your don't have one, make one out of aluminum foil. Once your bowl is going, take a piece of coal and put the windscreen on. You will get some good smoke! But be careful not to burn the tobacco!

Of course, use this in conjunction with the other ideas above, such as ice in the base, etc ...

Cheers!

Everything the other folks said and a big bore hose like Razan, Nammor or J&R hookahs custom washable, will help too.

Its all about practice and learning how to get the type of bowl you have with the right amount of holes to the right size coal

Exactly.
Plus, different tobaccos give different thicknesses of smoke. But heat management is the key.

Like other members have already stated, PRACTICE IS THE KEY! How many coals do you usually use? What brand/type? What shisha brand do you use? All these questions can give us the details for us to point you in the right direction towards getting thicker smoke. I get HUGE CLOUDS of smoke by using Starbuzz shisha, Golden Coals or Exotica's, and I usually put two to three pieces on my small tangier's phunnel bowl.

I always get thick clouds using these brands. Some shisha's won't give you thick smoke. Starbuzz definetly will no matter what. All you have to do is make sure you've got enough heat (meaning, the right amount of coals and heat management). Also adding a windcover can help add heat without adding too much like an extra coal would. You don't want to put too many coals, because then the shisha will overheat and everything starts going in the negative direction.

I usually use two pieces of Golden Coals or Exoticas in conjunction with a windcover to manage my session's thickness. Throughout the session, if I want more thickness I'll put on the windcover. If it get's to the thickness I want, then I'll take it off and so on and so forth.

I must say practice is key but a funnel helps me get huge clouds.
