Can you give us a quick intro about yourselves?

My name is Dominga, 25 years old and from different places. Haha.

Dutch mom, Chilean dad, born in Spain and I’ve grown up in different countries. It’s always hard for me to answer where I’m exactly from. For me home is not just one country but several.

I love surf, travel, my friends and family, meet new people, cuddle animals, good food and spend time on the beach.

When did you hear about The Bamboo Brush Society?

I heard about it some time ago when Roger came to the O’Neill office with the new tooth brushes. Though it was a great product form the start.

What do you think of the Bamboo toothbrush?

I think its great!

We are surrounded by so much plastic everyday and it has become so normal that most of the time we’re not even aware of it anymore. I really like when brands try to create awareness and contribute to this plastic problem we’re having.


You travel a lot around the world, what is the best spot you have brushed your teeth yet?

Last winter in Hawaii, with the best view of perfect waves at Sunset beach. I could brush my teeth there for hours…


What is your schedule for 2017 looking and what are you most looking forward too?

2017 is all about travelling to new destinations, meeting new people, doing fun projects and enjoying life as much as possible.

Share your best photo on your phone! Make us laugh

Just spend the last 10 minutes scrolling through my phone looking for a funny photo but for some reason I’m just the worst capturing funny moments. I’m always to late or don’t even think about taking a photo of it. This photo though does take me back to a happy place.


Last question… What is the number one place you like to go travel to?

My list is pretty long and it changes everyday, so here is my top 3:

  • Fiji
  • Panama
  • Mexico
