Default First Hookah

Hey everybody,
I ordered my first personal hookah yesterday from **********:
http://**********.com/KM-30-INCH-HJ-...ARBISH-142.htm

I'm really excited about it. It came with 48 coals and I ordered 500g of tangiers shisha as well. It should come in sometime early next week. I want everything to be ready so I can smoke it shortly after I get it. Is there anything that I should get to make it particularly sweet?

I know I've got the basics (shisha, coals, foil), but was wondering if there's anything that I need to/should get for my first hookah?

A big windcover.

And if you're smoking Tangiers, a phunnel bowl.

And you're gonna need alot more shisha. 500g ain't gonna last too long.

Oh jeeze Ugly.... don't scare the man. 500g should last him a couple weeks, maybe a month or more depending on how often he smokes.

I do agree with the wind cover and alternate bowl wholeheartedly.

Definitely get a windcover and either a vortex or funnel. I prefer funnel but hopefully this won't turn into another vortex v funnel debate lol

That hookah looks good! A funnel bowl and wind cover is a good idea! If you want a funnel bowl then check out hookahcompany.com. They have more colors in stock than HJ at the moment. And they have the small ones in stock still too if you like shorter smoke sessions.

Do you have a burner to light your coals with or are you just gonna use a stove?

If you didn't get Lucid Tangiers, and this is your first experience with Noir, you might wanna read up on acclimation.

Thanks guys. I contacted John before I ordered last night and he seemed convinced that I could order one of the alien phunnels when they come in and he could ship it so that they would end up here at the same time, so I will be getting a phunnel bowl. I just ordered the 500g of shisha because it was convenient, but there's a hookah shop around here that sells some pretty nice stuff, so I'll be going there to stock up on more. I do think 500g will last me awhile, though. I live in a dorm room for now, so smoking just isn't exactly convenient.

Thanks for suggesting the wind cover, though. That was something I had completely forgotten and, considering I will mostly be outside, I'll definitely need one. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

It seems like you've got all the basics, but I would just make sure you have your favorite drink or a drink that complements the flavor of the tobacco you choose as well as some food to munch upon. I smoked my first bowl on an empty stomach and I ended up going to the emergency room for some morphine for my horrid headache.
