The incidence of melanoma is indeed curious. Indoor workers whose pattern of exposure is irregular - being on weekends or holidays has a greater risk of developing melanoma than outdoor workers. That doesn't mean outdoor workers/surfers etc can't get melanoma though, and there is another type of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma which is also dangerous.
