Weaknesses: He's a pacifist and rarely fights to kill, in addition, he often doesn't use his abilities to their full potential
Destructive Capacity: Solar system level+/galaxy level+ (low tier heralds can casually star bust while Surfer, who was already the most powerful Herald, received an additional power up from Galactus in more recent years), universe level+ in full power (manipulated a portion of the Odinforce to resurrect Beta Ray Bill and reformed Stormbreaker with the Power Cosmic, a feat even Odin didn’t think possible; manipulated the energies of the Big Crunch while near dead and depleted of energy; created a universe in Dan Slott’s run, can overall amp his destructive capacity via cosmic energy absorption | Multiverse level+ (was able to fight against Knull, could block several attacks from Knull as well)
Range: Galactic
Speed: Massively FTL+ (at least billions of times FTL)
Durability: Solar system level+/galaxy level+ (routinely takes starbusting and planetbusting attacks easily), universe level+ in full power | Multiverse level+
Lifting Strength: Stellar Class+
Striking Strength: Class XPJ+, potentially Universe Class
Stamina: Vastly superhuman+ (does not tire unless fighting very powerful opponents)
Standard Equipment: His cosmic surfboard, which he can ride on, allowing him to go faster than lightspeed, it's made of the same material as his own skin (or his entire body, depending on the writer - this point is rather unclear), he has a psychic link to it and can control it remotely from great distances, using it as a weapon (to slam into an enemy or absorb them into it), or as a shield. If it is destroyed or damaged, the Surfer can recreate it
Intelligence: He was a brilliant scientist before he became Galactus' Herald, he is more proficient at using the Power Cosmic than anyone other than Galactus himself, he has many years of experience fighting various kinds of enemies from all over the multiverse and beyond
Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Time Travel: The Surfer can travel backward or forwards in time an undetermined amount (at least millions of years both ways). He can take other people or objects with him if they are riding his board. When traveling back in time, he can affect the past and change the course of history (which he did so against the Overlord in Silver Surfer Volume 1)

- Transmutation: Norrin can transmute matter into other states, ranging from things as simple as turning sand to gold, to restructuring complex alien weapons to emit nothing but harmless light

- Energy Manipulation: The Silver Surfer can harness nearly any form of energy, from ambient heat and light to the power of an entire star, to magic and souls, to the primordial cosmic energies of the universe itself. He can transform these energies into other types, and direct them to create many different types of effects
