Vaping is also a form of art. While some vapers would release the smoke normally, others prefer blowing large clouds of vapour, captivating onlookers. The latter is referred to as cloud chasing. 

Creating a vape cloud is considered an “extreme sport” in vaping and has massively grown in popularity in the vaping community, particularly among the youth. Aside from this competitive nature, cloud chasing has become so popular due to its creative expression and social media visibility. 

In this RELX Canada guide, you’ll learn every essential information there is about this skill, touching on what you need to produce epic cloud vapes and discussing some best practices. Let’s get started. 

What is Cloud Chasing?

Otherwise known as “stunt vaping,” “extreme vaping,” “power vaping,” and “Sub-Ohm vaping,” cloud chasing is a discipline, a skill, a science, and an art wherein the vaper produces the biggest possible cloud vape with their e-cigarette. They shall use their hands to shape the vapour and perform various tricks. 

According to Dominique Mosbergen’s piece on HuffPost, a news aggregator and blog, cloud chasing apparently began as a trend on the West Coast of the United States, then gave rise to cloud competitions that have popped up in New Mexico, Illinois, and New Jersey. 

Around a decade ago, Texas held its “first vape convention” featuring this sport, while California played host to an International Cloud Championship in 2017. Today, cloud chasing has spread across the globe. 

With the unprecedented popularity of e-cigarettes and several dedicated vape shops opening in cities worldwide, it is not a surprise that some “skilled vapers” turn the activity into a competition wherein they flaunt the biggest vape cloud they can ever produce. 

Essential Equipment for Cloud Chasing

Ready to puff out that spectacular big smoke? To create an epic vape cloud, you need the right equipment. First, of course, you must have a high-performing vape device. 

Vape Device

WAKA soPro PA10000 disposable vape

Two of the best vape devices for producing a stunning vape cloud are from RELX: the WAKA soPro PA10000 and DM8000i.

The soPro PA10000 comes from the remarkable WAKA series from our brand. As its name implies, this disposable vape offers 10,000 puffs and is available in various flavours. Its dual mesh technology is capable of producing extra-large vape clouds, ideal for cloud chasing. 

Meanwhile, if you prefer lesser puffs, the DM8000i WAKA vape is your best bet. It is also a disposable vape like PA10000 but produces 8,000 puffs. With its adjustable airflow and sleek design comes its wide range of flavours, including Jasmine Ice Tea, Icy Coconut Water, and Green Grape Ice. It is one of the best vape devices for cloud chasing because of its dual mesh technology that creates double vape clouds. 


For successful cloud chasing, you must also ensure your device has the right coils. Ideally, you need coils with a resistance of less than one ohm. The lower the resistance, the better. 


Meanwhile, the atomizer is responsible for converting the e-liquid into vapour. 


The best tanks for producing mesmerizing cloud vapes are those with adjustable airflow. Cloud chasing relies on achieving the right balance of airflow from the tank, so you should have a tank with just the right resistance, not too much, as the vapour may disperse easily. 


The best vape mode for cloud chasing has a wattage of at least 40W. These mods already include the batteries, display screen, modes, controls, and safety protections for short circuits. 

Drip Tip

For the drip trip, here’s the rule of thumb. The bigger the drip tip, the greater the inhalation. Thus, you can produce bigger clouds. 

Techniques for Creating Epic Vape Clouds

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can produce large clouds and wow the crowd. 

Step 1: Choose the Right Equipment

Without the right equipment, cloud chasing won’t be possible. Be sure to invest in top-notch hardware from leading vape brands, such as RELX. 

Step 2: Use an E-liquid With High Vegetable Glycerin

Once your equipment are ready, you must have an e-liquid with high vegetable glycerin (VG) content, preferably 70 percent or higher. VG is thicker, thereby producing denser and larger cloud vapes compared to propylene glycol (PG). 

Step 3: Master Inhaling and Exhaling Techniques

You may have the right hardware and e-liquid, but without knowing the proper inhalation and exhalation, you won’t be able to produce your desired vape cloud after all. 

For inhalation, take a deep and slow lung inhale to draw in as much vapour as you can. Maximize your lung capacity by utilizing your diaphragm. 

For exhalation, exhale forcefully but smoothly, utilizing your throat to create a consistent vapour stream. 

Step 4: Optimize Airflow

Next is optimizing airflow. Adjust the airflow settings of your atomizer to a wide-open position. This paves the way for more air to pass over the coils, creating bigger clouds while keeping the vapour cool enough so you can inhale comfortably. 

Step 5: Regularly Clean Your Equipment

Impressive cloud chasing is also about maintaining your equipment well. Regular maintenance prevents the build-up of residue that can reduce the vapour produced. 

Step 6: Practice Controlled Breathing

To maximize the density and size of the vape cloud, slow and deep inhales must work in synergy with controlled and steady exhales. This practice helps keep a consistent flow of vapour, thus enhancing cloud production.
