I run my 28mm Marathon Pluses at ~80/90 psi on the Surly and have yet to pinch flat even when loaded up.
(PS you're welcome to come around to try out my Specialized Airtool Pro if you'd like)

I reckon your pump is the problem. Get a good one and this problem will disappear.

Only tighten the pump on quarter of a turn after the noise stops - not all the way down. That way you'll only lose a tiny bit of air.
