Dunno, video is too choppy to get a real sense of what's going on, and why not include some footage of tacking?

Low trapping,close together,one rudder up ,windward hull just skimming the water,that's as good as it gets for proper twin trapping form.

I didn't mean to be down on that video; I totally agree about the form and watched it more than once. Of course the way YouTube is set up, that led to watching another, and another.... saw a lot of stuff that's been mentioned here. A back flip on capsizing, couple of pitchpoles, and a lot of really fun sailing. Some really crazy monohull stuff, too.

You love to see some good technique videos, though, for tacking and trapping in/out.

Nice upwind form in single trap conditions.
