New Brighton beach in Christchurch is a popular spot for sunrise photography with its unobstructed views to the east. You will find at least 1/2 dozen tripods out on a warm weekend morning.
The 300m long pier is the subject for most photos, but living here, you can only have so many photos of it. So I tend to avoid it and slow things down, looking for patterns in the waves.
Not a beach with massive surf, but you will generally find surfers out catching the morning breaks.
