Angry NEED HELP!

SO I just bought a huge Egypian hookah. I usually smoked out of my friend's MYA... so this seems to be much different. The smoke is thin and it tastes horrible. Any tips on smoking? Types of shisha that produces thick smoke and good taste

I NEED HELP!!!!!! I hate that I can't get a buzz off it and the smoke is SO thin!!!

uhhh...you're gonna have to be a little more specific...
1.what kind of coals are you using?
2. how much water do you put in the base?
3. what brand of tobacco are you using?
4. what is your foil pattern like?

and i know this is going to be said later on...you should strive to get good taste, instead of trying to get monstrous clouds and a good buzz. sure, those things are fun and enjoyable, but the taste is the most important.

one of the biggest tips i ever got though it may not apply in this case is to loose the metal screen and use foil i instantly when from thin whispy smoke to big booming thunderclouds

I wouldn't completely agree with byronSA on the part where u mentioned the fact that taste is the most important. The actual thing is that peoplehave different needs when it comes to hookah. Some want clouds others prefer flavor(I like both) and some like getting buzzed the combinations would vary from person to person. But what I do agree on is the fact that amykay needs to be more specific on his setup at the time he experienced the "thin" clouds and the aweful tasing smoke. So amykay if you could get that info for us we'd get right with the solutions

You should use a few small coals, and keep them on the edges of the bowl. Use fowl (not the screen, as DaGreyEst said), and poke many tiny (needle-tip) holes into the foil, and fill up the vase with water till about 3/4" over the bottom tip of the stem...
Besides that, use good shisha, and make sure your Hose isn't clogged!
