Question Session Lengths

Just wondering if you can shorten session lengths?

Because I sometimes don't want to go for the whole 50-60 minutes with my mates (His setup lasts around an hour!) And when I purchase my own hookah I would like to try and have different session lengths.

Is it the amount of coal and shisha etc?

Also can you extend sessions, or do you just finish and then setup another if you want to?

Thanks

I only have one bowl, I pack it accordingly. If I dont feel like finishing it then I won't. I will take the coal off let it cool and come back and trash the bowl. Shisha isn't expensive enough to make sure I recycle every last morsel . Call me wasteful if you want, but it is how I roll.

I have a standard Egyptian clay bowl that is pretty shallow, but I still get 45-60 minute sessions from it. My best advice would be use 1/4 stick of Exotica and a windcover. Move the coal every 10 minutes to the opposite side of the bowl, ash it at 20 minutes and extinguish it at 40 minutes. If you want a shorter session than that, good luck. LOL

Buy a smaller bow or put less shisha in you actual bowl, but the maybe you'll have some problems with the heat management so I'll recomend you a smaller bowl.
