Or you could type:

  set surface_color, -1

or if you had set the surface_color for a particular object, then you
would type:

  set surface_color, -1, objectname

where "-1" is the way of resetting to the default. This also works
for other settings that show up as "default" in the "Settings -> Edit
All..." GUI.
