Vaping has apparently become a sport.
With e-cigarettes gaining popularity and dedicated vape shops popping up in cities all across the country, perhaps it won’t come a shock that there are so-called “professional vapers” out there who compete against one another to blow the biggest, baddest clouds of smoke. The activity is known in the vape world as “cloud chasing.”
During the event, dubbed the “X-Games of vaping” by an attendee, contestants took turns exhaling clouds of epic proportions. To win the competition, a vaper had to create the biggest and densest cloud.
Competitive vaping is actually not a totally new phenomenon.
The “sport” apparently started as a West Coast trend, but cloud competitions have popped up in recent months in New Jersey, Illinois and New Mexico.
Some people have given the sport a thumbs-up. “It’s kind of impressive.”
