Most people that are into shisha are into simply because it's hip at the moment and blowing big clouds is an easy way of showing off. Such people don't care about taste because they like what ever their peers like.

More often then not that is what i've noticed.

I like big clouds because it's a lot of fun to play with. That doesn't mean i'll smoke shisha that tastes like crap but makes big clouds, the taste is always a priority far over the amount of smoke it produces for me at least, i'd expect it to be the same way for a lot of people here too, unlike most college hipsters who get crappy hookahs with crappy coals and crappy shisha with crappy setups who don't really know what they're doing.

same here. this is the reason i joined the hookahpro community because i want to learn everything there is about hookah and all the good stuff. i have many friends that have sketchy chinese hookahas that they bought way overpriced from local shops and they always make it super harsh so they can get big clouds. i wanted to figure out how to get good taste and show off that i can make the same cloud size to my friends. everytime i go to one of there houses they have me set up now haha!

Clouds for me is to show off. In a way it says my hookah is better than your hookah.

Not sure how true this is but that's my view.

its just something that we have to deal with. why whenever someone sees me running they say run forrest, i really hate that but i dont have to time to sit and try to tell them about all the running greats of America like Pre and webb and i dont have time to try and get people to stop being so concerned with clouds. Please do not ever yell out run forrest to a runner we hate it, its super annoying

Sure the flavor is first... but without good smoke you're hookah evidently isnt burning right... think of this... take the coals off... now smoke your hookah... no clouds no smoke no taste... when you smoke the smoke clouds are part of the expirence.. I like to let the smoke slowly fall out of my mouth so I can get all the taste I can. A thick cloud for me usually means that a tobacco is burning good... Look at tangiers... if you're not blowing big puffy clouds of smoke your not smoking it right...

Idk, smoke is just more fun. It makes the session even more entertaining and relaxing. But of course, flavor is much, much more important!

The youngins love to brag and show off. LOL I'm not concerned about who can throw more coals on their bowl and blow huge clouds. i get plenty of smoke using my set up and flavor is the only goal.

Clouds are good, but i've kinda trained the group of friends who smoke my hookah. When I started smoking nakhla the clouds werent super thick, but not a one of them went, "man this isn't thick" like they used to. Instead it was, "man, this stuff is amazing!"
Clouds are nice to play with, but ive never scorched shisha to get bigger clouds, taste is still the priority.

I like clouds and flavor. Why can't i have both damnit? lol. No it's just if i get puny clouds i don't feel complete with my session. I feel like somethings missing. I love exhaling and blowing o's or watching it hase over the tv, or teasing my cats with it when they walk by.

It's not to show off,because I do it when I am alone, they are just things I do / need while I smoke! lol

I smoke for flavor, but I like clouds for a simple reason. Good clouds are a sign of an efficient system; from the heat management and down to the proper diameter stem, through the proper amout of water and up the properly selected hose. Obviously you can blow crazy clouds by overheating your bowl, but If I was doing that I would probably vomit.

If you like long flavor but dont care about the smoke, why don't you chew tobacco? No set up, long flavor, good buzz. Thats probably what I would do if i didnt care about thick clouds.

The flavor is the major factor for me. Thats what got me. The clouds are nice but not the main focus. And for whoever above said that clouds are a way to show hookah superiority I feel is wrong. Anyone can burn the shit out of their bowl and generate stromclouds.

For me, I like to have a combination of both. At the beginning of my smoke, its usually very flavorful and a little bit of smoke, then it starts to lose some flavor and then the clouds come. That way you get the best of both worlds, and you dont have to be anal about keeping both going at the same time.

I don't understand .... what is that bothring you ??!!!!! I don't care about clouds but I don't mind if others like big clouds ... it is not like there are rules that you have to follow in order to be a good hookah smoker !!!

It is all about relaxation and having fun ... and everyone has his own idea about relaxation ...

So, just relax and enjoy your hookah the way you want

If everyone cared only about clouds with no flavor then Epic Smoke would be the biggest name in the field by now.

don't get me wrong the flavor is awesome but the session feels pointless without big clouds.

if your not getting decent clouds then you didn't set it up, right that's how i feel. i put three big naturals that are like and inch long or longer on top of all my bowls and the flavor is great and the clouds are as thick as could be (with fantasia...).
