How to blow smoke triangles
Return to Vaping Blog

Vape culture is one of the biggest subcultures in America today, with an enthusiastic and loyal following from social media to real-life vape competitions where airbenders come together to perform some seriously mind-melting smoke tricks. Maybe that’s even the reason why you started vaping. To master some of the same tricks as your favorite YouTuber or vape celebrity.


As with anything in life, the more advanced tricks obviously require more time and effort to learn and even more so to do them well. However, if you’re a beginner bored with blowing those O-rings, but can’t quite manage some of the more complicated cloud-creating theatrics, here is a simple vape trick that will diversify your experience (and any businessperson will tell you, it’s smart to diversify!). Enter the Smoke Triangle.


Step one

Take a drag from your vaporizer and inhale it into your throat.


Step two

Keep your tongue at the bottom of your mouth and towards the back of your throat.

Step three

Form an O with your lips and push a small amount of vapor out of your mouth.

Step four

Blow a milky dense O-ring and use your hand to push it.

Step five

Quickly tap the O down on the side to bend it into a triangle (some people find this easier to do with two hands).


Choose the method that is most convenient for you. If you’re right-handed, you’ll push your O-ring with your right hand and tap it down from the left side; if you’re left-handed, do it the opposite way.


Step six (optional)

Swipe down twice on the side of the O so it starts to ripple. The result should be a spinning triangle.


Don’t be fooled, novices. The above steps may seem simple, but timing is everything. As with any trick. It may take some time to create a smoke triangle that meets your expectations, even if you’re a smoke ring guru. But once you nail it, you’ll be one trick closer to being an airbending master.
