I think Surfer is meant to show up and bait a planet, attack it, discover its weaknesses and so forth. If the planet is ripe for consumption, he signals Galactus, otherwise he moves on to an easier target. Predators, when encountering a resilient prey, will often leave to find easier prey. Same here, I think. It will also mean we can expect a real rising drama as the Ultimates try to beat the living piss out of the Surfer so he runs and doesn't send Galactus the signal.
Awesome. I just hope we don't have Ultimate Silver Surfer on a literal surfboard. I hope he just flies along the "wave" or whatever.
