The north ramp has some nice banks out front. Sit just to the left of the Pier if you want nice rights. Otherwise, you can always find a nice peak to yourself anywhere along the beach.
Usually when there is a swell running, everyman and his dog from the Brighton area will be out. There are a few hot locals that will grab a few waves. The Bennett crew are always out week days and weekends. Generally a good vibe out here and during summer, crowds of people stroll on the pier to see the sights of surfing and fishing.
Would be nice to ban the fishermen that choose to cast their lines off the pier. Watch out you don´t get a hook in your leg !! Posing show-off surfers are more important than the people of Christchurch having a free substitute for a boat.

Nothing special here - The waves are pretty weak, but good for newbies. I don't know why people complain about people fishing off the pier when there's another 10km of identical beach nearby.
