Are the waves in Hawaii and Oahu only suitable for good surfers?

When one thinks of surfing Oahu, several images come to mind.  The barrels at Banzai Pipeline and the shallow reef at Rocky Point and other dangerous reefs. A broad and luxurious wave of Waimea Bay. However, in reality, from the north coast to the south coast of Honolulu, there are surf spots suitable for all levels, from beginners to advanced. 

As an example the lovely soft waves at Honolulu are so good for learning and excellent for relaxed longboarding.  The only thing i would say is that the surf might be easy but navigating the crowds is not so simple.
