Have you ever been to a vape competition? If the answer is yes, then you’ll know how cool the tricks can look.
Vaping has truly evolved over the past few years. With the introduction of sub ohm and unregulated mod devices, you can now find vaping kits which compared to what they were a decade ago, are truly futuristic. It is this evolution, continuing to snowball as the years go on, which has paved the way for vaping to take up a role of not only the cessation of tobacco dependence, but of a social community and culture. With it’s own clothing brands, styles and way of life, vaping is snowballing into something truly gigantic.
And part of the reason for this is in the huge vaping competitions that happen the world over. Whether you’re in London vape shop or a stadium in Los Angeles, you’re more than likely going to find some of the most exciting brands out there, representing some of the coolest cloud chasers using mods today.
Vape competitions usually work with a panel of judges giving scores to vapers who do tricks with the thick plumes of smoke they exhale from their vapes. Staying within competition guidelines, these vaping pros will show off their best tricks.
Most of these vaping pros will use VG heavy liquids with little to no nicotine, due to the sheer amount of vapour they will be inhaling. If you’re thinking about getting involved, then make sure you drink plenty of water and battle against a potential sore throat brought on by inhaling so much hot vapour.
So what are the coolest vape tricks out there? And how do you do them? Keep in mind that this is merely an introduction to these tricks, and that you’re more than likely going to need to do a lot of practice before you’re ready to vape.
This cool trick is very visual indeed. The name says it all really, and the aim of this is to have vapour wafting from everywhere it can. The dragon is achieved by taking a large intake of vapour and on the exhale breathing out slowly through your nose with some force. At the same time, exhale through your mouth which should be open only at the corners. This means that you’ll have a multi-directioned billow of vape.
Vape rings are one of the most popular vape tricks out there. Depending on your skill level and your patience to learn, you can blow them very large indeed. Vape rings are relatively easy to pull off in their simplest form; simply inhale some vapour into your lungs before pursing your lips into an “O” shape. Once you’ve done this, you can begin to exhale vape through the pursed lips. There is a knack to the exhale however. Make sure that you are exhaling direct from the throat in a sort of pulsing motion, a little like coughing. The bigger the O shaped lips, the harder the pulsing motion should be.
This is an offshoot of many other tricks, including the aforementioned vape rings. These tricks are known as Magneto because of their similarity to the effects pon metal of the telepathic supervillain from the X Men.
There are several magne style tricks you can do.
One includes “guiding” your vape rings. This requires you to blow a vape ring and with a quick flat palm movement towards the vape ring, you can begin to control its movement and direction, using the force of the air you have created. You can also click with your fingers to the side of the ring to make its contents disperse.
Liquid Mist is another easy trick to pull off. This one counts as less of a trick and more of a fun effect which almost anyone could do.
This one is more about the look than the technique. Using a glass of liquid, begin to vape into the glass, making sure your lips are touching it. Due to the fact that vapour is heavier than air, the liquid will stay in the glass and will stay in there, creating a cool effect on your drink! This is a cool one to photograph or video, and if you like you can even drink the vapour with your liquid!
