Looking for some specific advice on completing my AFF. I'm 29, Australian male leaving Japan in the next two week and want to attain my AFF but not looking to head back to Australia yet. Looking to get an idea of the best place to go and do it. The time of year weather wise for May, affordable course, accommodation at the drop zone, any possibility of been able to volunteer at drop zones to keep cost down. I'm looking at the US, California so that I could chill out and surf when I can't dive. Dubai looks like it has the facilities and cost affective but not sure I want to be in Dubai if its going to take longer as the rest of Dubai looks expensive.
