Two men were forced to call on a friend for urgent help after their day at the beach turned out to be a complete disaster with them floating out to sea.
Jackson Perry and Noah Palmer had to be rescued by their pal after a sudden gust of wind swept their inflatable mattress out to sea, two miles off the coast of Perth, Australia.
However, their plans went awol when a sudden gust of wind swept them away, leaving them stranded for close to three hours, with just one bar of phone battery left.
Speaking on Sunrise, Jackson said: "We had this mattress out the front of Noah's house, it was a bit deflated, so we decided to pump it up, go down and have a drift on the water, probably only 50m.
"We just thought we'd go out and drift around on the water for a moment on the mattress, and then we realised the wind had taken us out."
He went on to say: "We couldn't paddle against the wind and we just kept going further and further out. We only aimed to be 100m offshore, max, and before we knew it, we were out to sea.
"All we knew is that Tex [their friend, Tex Seek] was 30 - 40 minutes away, and we were just hoping he finds us because all of our phones were dying and we were kind of getting worried at that point."
During their time at sea, the mattress started to deflate causing it to sink, with Noah having to repump it every ten minutes until Tex came to the rescue.
Despite being swept away, Noah said that the pair only started to become worried when they noticed their supply of booze was slowly decreasing.
"As long as we had enough beers to keep us going we were all right, as soon as the beers got a bit low we tried to head back in," he said.
Rescue workers from Mandurah Volunteer Rescuers and Tex Reeks were swiftly deployed to help rescue the two mates, with Tex instantly jumping on his jet ski after receiving a call from Noah and Jackson.
Despite the disastrous outcome, Jackson said: "Definitely check the wind forecast before anything but other than that we had a pretty good time."
