Getting along swimmingly: Members of the Santa Rosa Sharks underwater hockey team move in for a goal at the Ridgeway Pool in Santa Rosa.

Water World

I LIKE THE RUSH I get at 12 feet," says aqua-hockey enthusiast Brian Tucker, 28, a physical education teacher who can scrimmage at the pool bottom for a full minute before coming up for air. Tucker is a member of the Rasta Sharks--a loose-knit team of underwater sports enthusiasts that gathers each week in the Ridgeway High School pool to dive and chase a puck through the cool, blue deep. The watery workout attracts players from ages 15 to 68, who are part of a growing fraternity of Speedo-clad warriors nationwide. The Sharks' underwater hockey games are open to the public each Thursday at 8 p.m. at the Ridgeway Pool, Ridgeway High School, 325 Ridgeway Ave., Santa Rosa; 585-8235
