  1. I think he had not enough momentum to go to the top of the dune
  2. There was a sand pocket that made him lost even more momentum I remember we could not even make it to the low part of the dune with the momentum we had
  3. I think that he hesitated to give more gas and steer right once the car sank

It looks as if he encountered one or two serious bumps on that ascend, which made him lose the momentum a bit. The sand indeed looks very soft.

Looks like not many offroaders are interested here in knowing these secrets, as they are happy being stuck.

My observation: Everything that Fred and Javier's mention is true + when you are in lead you are bound to get these stuck as sometimes you step on deceiving looking sand, that looks hard from top but super soft from below. So as soon as you step on it, you will get stuck. Sometimes in such situation, only your early action of steering down/away can help to escape such stuck.

Emmanuel, please add your viewpoint as a driver in case we have missed any.

I think you covered everything, well done. As you mentioned it was a very very soft patch (and again the sand was a bit wet underneath). I will just add one detail : as shown by @Javier M there was a fraction of second of hesitation when I saw the small pocket below on the right. It doesn’t appear clearly on the video, but it was a quite nasty one. I could have got stuck in an even worst way if I had felt in it from this angle.
