Surfing - which island

We are in the early stages of planning a trip to Hawaii in June/July. My husband surfs, but has only taken it up in the last 6-7 years so likes what we call 'old man surf'! At present we are looking at 5-6 days (each) on Kauai and Oahu. Would there be particular places on each island that we should be looking to stay at so that we can be near some good surf beaches? Thanks for your advice.

That is easy for Oahu, Waikiki. The birthplace of surfing.

Well, coming to Kauai during the summer months, I would always recommend staying on the amazing north shore, but the surf will be flat like a pancake in July on the north shore, so you would want to be in the Poipu area for any surfing.
