Well, the situation is Hit or Stand is > -50%, Split is -47% (with added variance, you play two hands at -23.5%), and surrender is -50% with a decrease in variance "For The Play".
The number of times one is faced with the 88 vs. 10-value is small, so surrendering, though against Basic, will not cost you much in overall EV... maybe .001%.

In a Hit Soft 17 game with surrender, you will Surrender 88 vs. Ace: Stand soft 17 you will split.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.
