We consider the focusing quintic nonlinear Schrödinger equation posed on a rotationally symmetric surface, typically the sphere $S^2$ or the two dimensional hyperbolic space $H^2$. We prove the existence and the stability of solutions blowing up on a suitable curve with the log log speed. The Euclidean case is handled in [25] and our result shows that the log log rate persists in other geometries with the assumption of a radial symmetry of the manifold.
