      Actually Surfer said he knew Gladiator had a radiation weakness and could use it to beat him. But in actual practice when he fought Krosakis with Gladiator's powers, he used only energy blasts.

    Okay, so Surfer can just generate Kryptonite to beat Superman. It's an even easier win then.

He knew about Gladiator's weakness. He doesn't knows that about Superman. 


      Surfer has been shown inferior to Quasar twice in energy manipulation. Once against Dampyre who defeated Surfer by draining him and then Quasar overloaded him in the very next issue. Second time was against Ego in Maximum Security where Surfer nearly died trying to absorb Ego's energy but Quasar absorbed all of Ego's power.

    I haven't read those issues, but in a direct head-to-head matchup with Quasar, Surfer first claims to be more powerful than the Quantum-Bands and then Quasar can't even energy drain the Surfer to a degree sufficient for the Surfer to even notice.

Being more powerful doesn't means you're more skilled. 

Here is Wendell absorbing Ego's power.

Surfer unable to do so.

And here Surfer casually breaks free from Quasar's energy construct meant to hold the Surfer:

Again, not an energy manipulation feat. Lots of characters have broken free from Quasar's constructs. 


    Parasite, Kyle and Atom all have feats putting them ahead of Surfer in energy manipulation.

    Only when they are in a powered-up incarnation; otherwise, nope. Can a normal Parasite, Kyle, and Captain Atom manipulate energy to disable all machinery on Earth?


That's energy manipulation? This is energy manipulation. Kyle contains an entropic quantum singularity.

Further, Surfer has failed to stabilize a dying red sun on his own.

While even blue lanterns have stabilized dying red suns easily.

And even a total noob Tom Kalmaku recreated all of Oa and its advanced tech from scratch by a GL ring.

Now that is tech manipulation.
