SURFER HAAKON
Avid windsurfers skimming the waves off Norway's rugged coastline often have an inkling when the country's heir to the throne is out as well. The clue is usually the polished Volvo parked by the beach and the presence of watchful royal lifeguards. Not that 33-year-old Haakon is likely to need assistance. Renowned for his watersports prowess, the prince spent this summer sharing his windsurfing knowledge with stepson Marius.

The adventurous royal has also tried his hand at wakeboarding, a trendy freestyle pastime that combines elements of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing. While it's not known whether Haakon is yet up to speed on 'boardslides' and 'air raleys' - two of the activity's key moves there's no questioning his ability to cut a dash out on the water.
